Requirements to Adopt in Texas

In Texas, all adoptive parents must be financially stable and at least 21 years old. In addition, Texas law provides some basic requirements that prospective adoptive parents must meet in order to be eligible to adopt. Adoptive parents must undergo thorough background checks, family history checks, and home visits. This is done to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for the child to be adopted.

An extensive home study course must be completed by both adoptive parents as well, and the parental rights of each living birth parent must be terminated. Kutty Law Firm, PLLC can assist you in completing all of these things to help prevent snags in the process.

These requirements include:

  • Completing an application and providing references
  • Submitting to a criminal history check
  • Completing a home study, including interviews
