Texas Adoption Attorneys
Helping Individuals In Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston And Throughout Texas
The adoption of a child should be one of the most joyful moments of your life. Often, however, the process can be one filled with stress and anxiety, as you work to make certain you have correctly completed all the paperwork and have taken all the steps to safely and permanently bring the child into your home. When you want to minimize the emotional challenges involved with adoption, having an experienced and competent attorney by your side can be critical.
At Bailey & Galyen, we have been protecting the rights of individuals and families throughout Texas for 40 years. We understand the intense emotions involved in the adoption process and are committed to providing a high level of person attention and service throughout the process. We work hard to be available whenever you need to talk with us, listening carefully to your questions and concerns. We will always keep you fully apprised of any developments in your case, as well as your options moving forward, so that we can minimize the stress and anxiety that comes with uncertainty.
Our Adoption Practice
We handle all matters throughout the adoption process, preparing and filing all necessary documentation and acting as your representative in hearings or meetings with birth parents, adoption agencies or the courts. We represent men, women and families in a broad range of adoption proceedings, including:
- stepparent adoptions
- agency or private adoptions
- open or closed adoptions
- grandparent or relative adoptions
- intrastate, interstate or international adoptions
The adoption process can be arduous, forcing you to clear many hurdles before you can finally bring a child home. We will be there with you at every step, providing counsel as you complete applications, advising you regarding home studies and helping you obtain all the necessary documentation to finalize the process. We will handle all matters related to the termination of parental rights, if required, to finalize the adoption. When necessary, we will act as your advocate with birth parents, negotiating agreements to cover medical or other expenses incurred by the birth or care of the child before the adoption.
