Types of Child Adoption Representation I Provide

Stepparent Adoption

In the State of Texas, if you’re the stepparent of a child you have legal standing to file for adoption of that child or children. Stepparent adoptions are one of the most different forms of adoption as the stepparent generally knows the child, the parent, and has shared residency with one or both of them as an immediate family member for a lengthy period of time.

With this form of adoption the process can be streamlined as it’s mainly a way to establish a legal relationship for an already-existing family unit. However, it shouldn’t be assumed that their won’t be or aren’t complications with the stepparent-adoption process. By working with Attorney Jackson F. Gorski or another experienced child adoption lawyer in Austin, you’ll save time, avoid complications, and stay on the best path to making your family 100% whole.

Private Adoption

This method of adopting a child is highly complex, and complicated for inexperienced petitioners and would-be litigants. There are a number of lawfully required processes that must be followed or the attempt will fail. If you’re considering adopting a baby or a child via private adoption, you’ll make the process a lot less complicated with Attorney Jackson F. Gorski as your chief counsel or another skilled family law attorney in Austin that’s familiar with Texas law & family code as it relates to adoption.

With private adoption cases the biological parent(s) have a say in which family will be allowed to adopt their child. Parents who are hoping to adopt may also be able to choose the birth mother.

Attorney Jackson F. Gorksi recommends that both the biological parents and the adopting parents have legal representation. You all have rights and need-to-know information to be made aware of.

The private adoption process provides the best benefit for the child. It keeps them out of the troubled foster-care system and from being under the care of the State of Texas for lengthy periods of time.
