Adoption

Adoption is a major decision that requires a thorough, honest assessment of the situation beforehand. After a child is adopted, the adoptive parents enjoy the same legal rights and responsibilities as they would with a biological child.

At Short Law Firm, PC, our attorneys advise you honestly as to the likelihood of success and whether adoption is ultimately in your best interest and the best interest of the child. Once decided, we can help you through the adoption process, ensuring it is conducted in compliance with all legal requirements and that your rights are protected.

With years of family law experience, we continue to take the time necessary to really listen to our clients, and then we work hard to obtain the best results possible given their circumstances. Contact us at our firm today.

Attorneys Assisting With International And Domestic Adoptions

Our attorneys have extensive experience with all types of adoptions, including:

  • International
  • Stepparent
  • Private (non-agency)
  • Grandparent
  • Third-party adoptions, in which the birth mother works through a private adoption agency

Adoption has its advantages and disadvantages for all involved. If you are seeking to make your family complete through this process, we can assist you with the difficult, but rewarding, transition to parenthood.

Stepparent Adoptions

Our Plano-based attorneys can also assist with all of the details and processes involved when you are attempting to adopt your spouse's child.

First and foremost, we will seek termination of the child's other parent's parental rights. If they refuse to give up their rights, we will persuasively advocate how your adoption of the child would be in his or her best interest.
