Experienced and Attentive Texas Adoption Attorneys
Stepparent Adoptions | Domestic Adoptions | Agency Adoptions | Private Adoptions | Family Adoptions | Adult Adoptions
There are few actions in the world more emotionally rewarding than adopting a child. In addition to starting or building your family, you experience the joy of providing a loving and nurturing environment for a child. But the adoption process can be daunting and confusing, and the process can take most the joy out of an adoption. You want a knowledgeable and skilled lawyer to guide you through the adoption, so that it becomes the life-affirming experience it should be.
At Bailey & Galyen, we’ve worked with individuals and families in Texas for more than 30 years, including men and women involved in the adoption process. The lawyers in our family law practice offer more than 200 years of combined practice experience to men and women across Texas. We provide assertive, yet compassionate legal counsel throughout an adoption proceeding, always listening carefully and working toward minimizing roadblocks and challenges. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service and attention, and we recognize that every adoption is unique. We’ll keep you involved and informed at all times, so that you know where you stand and what your options are moving forward. We also understand the importance of communication, and we’ll strive to respond to all your calls and e-mails as quickly as possible.
Protecting Your Interests in an Adoption Proceeding
We advise couples and individuals in all types of adoption proceedings, such as:
- Stepparent adoptions—adoptions to establish legal relationships between your minor children and a new spouse
- Open or closed adoptions—Adoptions where you have the choice of knowing or not knowing the identity of the birth parent, and of having a continuing relationship with the birth parent
- Agency or private adoptions—We’ll represent you in dealings with adoption agencies or directly with birthmothers seeking to privately place a child for adoption
- Relative adoptions—Adoptions by grandparents, aunts or uncles or other family members
- Adult adoptions—Adoption proceedings initiated when the adoptee is a legal adult
We’ll be your advocate with any party to an adoption, helping determine what you will pay for and what others, such as adoption agencies or birthparents, will provide. We’ll complete all necessary paperwork and prepare and file any documents required by the court, and will be your voice in all meetings, conferences, or hearings
