Bringing Families Together Through Adoption
Adoption can be a beautiful experience for a family, but it’s also a time-consuming and emotionally arduous journey. If you are considering adopting a child or a vulnerable adult, it is important that you hire an experienced attorney to help you through this complex legal process to ensure your time is well spent.
At Terrazas Henkel, P.C., our experienced attorneys have helped many grandparents, stepparents, relatives, and others apply for and complete adoptions of loved ones.
Assisting With All Aspects Of Adoption
We understand that there are many reasons a person may wish to adopt a child or a legal adult. Adoption enables:
- Couples who are unable to have biological children realize their dreams of parenthood
- Stepparents to gain full legal rights to a child from a spouse’s prior marriage or relationship, establish paternity and legitimize a child under the law
- Relatives of deceased, incapacitated, or unfit parents to assume responsibility to care for and support a child or vulnerable adult
- Expectant mothers who are unable to care for children to provide a better option for the child’s future
No two families are exactly the same. Likewise, neither are any two adoptions. At Terrazas Henkel, P.C., we understand that adoptions are sensitive and intensely important to everyone involved. We will take the time to understand your circumstances and pursue the course of action that is right for you and your adoptive child.
We also take pride in working diligently to hasten the complicated process so your family can be united with dignity and in a timely manner.
