Careful Legal Guidance Through The Adoption Process

Adoption is the one happy day in family law — unless your case is mismanaged by an attorney who is not familiar with this area of the law. During my 20 years of practice I have helped many parents successfully adopt children. To ensure that your case goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible, contact our Houston, Texas, office.

The Robinowitz Law Firm, P.C., handles all types of adoptions for clients in Harris, Montgomery, Galveston and other nearby counties in the greater Houston area. Adoptions are highly technical, and all documents on the lengthy checklist of requirements must be precisely prepared. I provide experience and attention to detail, walking clients through every aspect of the process so they know what to expect.

  • Private Adoption | Houston — If you are adopting through a private arrangement with a birth mother, I will draft or review the contract and court documents to ensure your rights are protected and there are no legal loopholes to cause trouble down the road.
  • Stepparent Adoption | Texas — Formally adopting a stepdaughter or stepson transfers to the stepmother or stepfather all the legal rights of a natural parent, including decision-making, and establishes inheritance rights for the child. I handled one case in which the natural mother developed cancer, helping her husband (the stepfather) adopt her children so that he would retain primary conservatorship if she died.
  • CPS Adoption | Houston — If a child has been placed in Child Protective Services because of abuse or abandonment by the natural parents, we will represent grandparents, relatives or foster parents in adopting the child. This involves termination of parental rights, the death penalty of family law. Even a voluntary termination must be properly documented and filed correctly. Involuntary (contested) cases require an attorney with an extensive family law and litigation background to demonstrate that the natural parent(s) are unfit, and that termination and adoption are in the best interests of the child.
