A stepparent adoption in your blended family in Frisco or elsewhere in Texas will most likely solidify an already established relationship between you and your stepchildren. When you adopt your stepchild, your new son or daughter will acquire all the same rights that any biological child of yours would.
Consult With One Of Our Frisco Stepparent Adoption Attorneys
The Rachel Firm has a great deal of experience handling legal matters such as stepparent adoption. We understand the importance of getting all the details correct and facilitating a smooth legal transition for clients who trust us with their important family law needs and ensuring that the adoption cannot be challenged after the fact.
In a stepparent adoption, the relationship between the child and the stepparent is usually already well underway. The adoption is usually only a formality in such cases.
Ask About Texas Termination of Parental Rights
However, legal procedures that are part of every adoption include termination of parental rights of the biological parent. If that parent has failed to support the child, is out of contact, or completely disengaged, this will generally just be a formality. If, on the other hand, that parent has objections to the stepparent adoption, a direct legal challenge in the courtroom may be necessary.
