Child Adoptions

It is indeed true that each person is unique to some degree. Some derive their uniqueness from their families, cultures or even religion. It is also undisputed that the family defines an individual’s character or uniqueness in more profound ways than the other factors combined. But did you know that not all families start from the same page? Well, I bet you guessed right that some families come together through a legal process called ‘adoption.’ Nevertheless, the process of adopting a child or deciding to place your biological child for adoption could be stressful considering that the laws governing the adoption process in Texas are somewhat complex.

Step-child adoption

Sometimes couples may want to blend step-children into new families through remarriages. Surprisingly, the state of Texas does not guarantee automatic parental rights to step-parents as the law requires that some procedures must be followed before both spouses can gain parental rights. Whereas many people tend to assume automatic parental rights whenever they remarry, and children are involved, it is advisable to acquire full parental rights through adoption because this will eliminate legal hurdles in the future.

Private adoptions

A private adoption occurs when a child’s biological parent agrees to give his/her child to an adoptive family. Private adoption is somewhat complex which means that if you are interested in this type of adoption, you will require a reputable agency or an experienced adoption lawyer to oversee the adoption. Private adoptions can be either open or closed. An open adoption occurs when the biological parent(s) meet with the adoptive parent(s) with the help of an attorney or adoption agency. A closed adoption occurs when both parties choose not to see each other, perhaps as a measure to hide their identity in which case the adoption process is entirely handled by an attorney.

CPS adoption

This form of adoption is usually facilitated by the Child Protective Services (CPS) and involves minors who have been victims of abandonment, neglect, and abuse. Persons interested in adopting such minors must also fulfill certain conditions such be in good health and be at least 21 years old.

International adoptions

International adoptions involve the adoption of children from other countries of the world. International adoption is overly complex because it is controlled by both local and international laws. For instance, a child adopted from another country must first have an immigrant visa.
