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.

These requirements include:

  • Completing an application and providing references
  • Submitting to a criminal history check
  • Completing a home study, including interviews
  • Attending training to learn about the issues adopted children could have

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.

Consider Kutty Law Firm, PLLC for Your Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful way to add to your family and provide a loving environment for a child who is not your own. This commitment, while noble and rewarding, is not as straightforward as you may hope. In fact, it can be incredibly complex and involved, both for the protection of the child and the benefit of the family adopting. The adoptive parents may need a social study conducted, criminal background checks, an ad litem attorney appointed by the Court to find a missing biological parent, and and amicus attorney to look after the best interests of the child or children being adopted. Attempting to adopt without professional assistance is extremely difficult, which is why having an experienced Sugar Land adoption lawyer on your side is essential.
