Stepparent Adoption In Texas — League City Adoption Lawyer

Stepparent adoption can be a difficult process. In most situations, the termination of a biological parent's parental rights will be necessary. The family law court will require proof that the biological parent is unfit or not present to care for his or her child. As a stepparent, you will need to prove that adoption is in the child's best interests, and the court will be the final judge.
