Step Parent Adoption

family law step parent adoption

If you are a step-parent who intends to be a full-time parent to your spouse’s children, or you are a person who has finally found the “right one” and would like to formalize the family union as well as the marital one, step-parent adoption or second-parent adoption may be right for you.

In Texas, step parent adoption is fairly common, however it often requires the cooperation of the non-custodial parent, who must agree in writing to terminate their rights. Texas law also allows parental rights to be terminated without consent in instances of abuse or abandonment.
