Types of Adoption in Texas

Don’t let the complexities of the adoption process stop you from pursuing your family’s goals. Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law is eager to serve as your trusted guide every step of the way.

We can assist you with:

  • Stepparent adoptions: If you have been living with your spouse and his/her child from a previous marriage, you may wish to establish a legal, formal relationship with your stepchild through adoption. Our team can assist you with this process.
  • Agency adoptions: Some families choose to adopt a child through an agency. There are public and private adoption agencies throughout Texas and the U.S.
