Our Adoption Services and Process
Depending on your goals and the circumstances surrounding your situation, there are several different types of adoption. Though many of the processes are similar in nature, they each require a unique approach.
Mitchell E. Shannon, Attorney at Law has helped families just like yours achieve their goals through adoption.
We can assist you with many types of adoption, including:
- Stepparent adoption: If you are a stepparent hoping to solidify your relationship with a stepchild you have cared for like your own, our firm can help you pursue a stepparent adoption.
- Agency adoption: There are private and public agencies throughout the country that adoptive parents can connect with. We can help you with an adoption whether it’s in the state of Texas or one of the other 49 U.S. states.
- Private adoption: Rather than go through an agency, you can also adopt a child directly from a birth mother, through a private adoption. We’ll make sure that the process is completed lawfully and that all the legal ends are tied up neatly.
- International adoption: There are agencies and families around the world who are hoping to put a child into a loving family. If you are adopting internationally, the paperwork, documentation, and requirements can be even more overwhelming than a domestic adoption. Our team can help you through the process.
- Relative adoption: If a child’s parents have, for any reason, been unable to care for their child, a relative adoption may be the best fit for the family. We help grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives complete adoptions for children in their family.
