Looking to Adopt a Child in Houston, TX?

Houston Adoption Attorney

There are many reasons to adopt a child. Married couples may look to adopt because they may be unable to have their own children. Some parents choose to expand their family by adopting a foreign child, and other parents may adopt their stepchildren. No matter the reason, the Torres Law, P.C. is here to guide you through the process. I, Houston adoption lawyer Enrique "Henry" Torres, can provide the legal advice and counsel you need to assist you in an adoption.

There are many options for adoption, including:

  • Independent: You can make direct arrangements with the birth parents, without the help of an agency. In most cases, the adopting couple typically hires an attorney to handle the paperwork.
  • Agency: A public or private agency usually helps place children in suitable homes.
  • Stepparent: Some people choose to adopt the children of their new spouse, after the consent of the birth parents.
  • International: Going overseas for adoption is very popular, but requires that you comply with strict adoption rules in both the foreign country and the U.S. You must obtain an immigrant visa for the child. Once the child arrives in the U.S., they are automatically granted citizenship.
  • Identified: In some instances, the adopting parents seek out the birth mother themselves, then utilize an agency to execute the paperwork.
  • Relatives: A member of the child's family often steps in to adopt the child when the child's parents are unable to care for him or her.
