Whether you are looking to carry out an adoption of your spouse's child, the child of another family member or a child who is unrelated to you, we at Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, can help you navigate Texas' complex adoption process.

We Represent The Best Interests Of Your Family During Stepparent And Grandparent Adoptions

The first priority during any adoption is to protect the best interests of the children involved. To ensure children are placed into safe and nurturing homes, the state requires prospective parents to engage in an exhaustive process of paperwork and applications, background checks, interviews, and in some cases, pursuing the termination of the biological parents' rights to their children.

We offer a variety of adoption services to eliminate stress and help you enjoy your new family:

  • During a consultation, we can assess your current situation and determine if your adoption application has the potential for success.
  • We can assist with paperwork and ensure there are no glaring errors or omissions.
  • We will help you prepare for interviews and home visits.
  • We can help with pursuing the termination of a parent's rights over a child.

At Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, we have helped numerous families come together through the Child Protective Services' (CPS) system for adoptions. The CPS process is complex and requires the skill and experience of a family law attorney who understands how to navigate the CPS system, the processes for terminating the rights of a biological parent and how to successfully advocate on behalf of grandparents, foster parents or other potential guardians.

Helping Texas Families Realize The Benefits Of Adoption

Texas has many incentives in place for families who wish to adopt. Ranging from benefits, such as free college tuition at a state college or university, to paying for a lawyer, the state shares our firm's sentiment that placing a child in a nurturing family should be everyone's first priority.
