Adoption

Adoption can be an exciting prospect or it can be a necessary step as the result of life changing, tragic circumstances. Newborns, older children, foster children, grandchildren, stepchildren, and adults may be adopted in Texas.

The Law Office of Michelle Poblenz can streamline your stepparent adoption or relative adoption.

Do You Want To Adopt Your Grandchild?

There are few requirements, including:

  • Mature adult, 21 years or older
  • Financially stable and able to provide for the child's basic needs
  • Responsible and willing to nurture the child
  • Provide references from relatives and nonrelatives

While the law does not require you to have a lawyer to proceed with all adoptions, Ms. Poblenz can help you get the process moving along with fewer obstacles along the way.

Some adoptions, such as adopting a family member or a stepchild, are best completed with an experienced attorney.

There are dozens of private adoption agencies in Texas as well at the state's Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to work with for available children to adopt. Ms. Poblenz has extensive experience working with DFPS and knows how their system is set up, including home inspection requirements.

Adoption of a foreign baby or child, often called an "international adoption," can be completed through an agency specializing in international adoptions. Contact the Law Office of Michelle Poblenz for counsel and advice if you are pursuing an international adoption.
