How to Adopt a Stepchild in Texas

At the Houston, Texas, law firm of Cynthia Tracy, Attorney at Law, P.C., we provide the seasoned legal help you need regarding stepparent adoptions. We work with moms and dads interested in adopting their partners'/spouses' minor children. Do you face an issue involving:

  • A parent who doesn't visit his or her child or honor child support obligations?
  • A parent who has been negligent or irresponsible as to their parenting duties?
  • A parent with drug or alcohol problems?
  • A parent with a criminal record, including a sexual offense or a crime against a child?

We can work to accomplish your stepparent adoption whether it is contested or uncontested:

  • Contested: We can gather evidence to demonstrate that the mother or father has behaved irresponsibly and argue for an involuntary termination of parental rights.
  • Uncontested: Sometimes a biological parent is willing to relinquish parental rights by agreement. We can handle all court documents and processes, including filing for the termination of parental rights.

Skilled Representation in Family Court Proceedings

You and your partner or spouse have options when a parent does not exercise visitation rights, endangers your child, does not pay child support and does not live up to his or her parental responsibilities. We have extensive courtroom experience in the area of family law and are willing to take your issues before a judge to protect your rights and the best interests of your stepchild.
