What Does Adoption Legally Mean?
Adoption is the legal process in which the rights of a child toward their biological parents are terminated and replaced with new rights and obligations created between the child and the adoptive parents.
In the state of Texas, the paperwork required for an adoption is substantial and can include termination of parental rights, criminal background checks, petition for adoption, and name changes. Without a qualified adoption attorney, any mistakes made in this process can be heartbreaking.
