Are You Adopting A Family Member’s Child? Parental Rights Will Need To Be Terminated First.

When a grandparent, aunt, uncle or other relative adopts a relative, the court typically requires a detailed study to determine if this move is the right one, particularly if it involves termination of parental rights.

You do not have to wait for the court to appoint someone to conduct the study. We work closely with social workers who conduct interviews, examine the facts and provide expert assessments about the benefits of adoption for the child.

We take great care to inform you about the steps you will need to take. At the outset, we will set realistic expectations and give you honest answers about the potential outcomes.

Working with a local attorney is particularly valuable in adoption cases. Judges have a great deal of discretion when making adoption decisions. Having practiced law in the Frisco area for so many years, we understand the tendencies of local judges. Our team knows how to build a case with these tendencies in mind, and we feel this is a critical aspect of our service.
