Helping Families With 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.
I am J. Kyle Short and as the principal attorney at Short Law Firm, PC, I will 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, I can help you through the adoption process, ensuring it is conducted in compliance with all legal requirements and that your rights are protected.
With over 20 years of experience as a Texas adoption attorney, I take the time necessary to really listen to my clients, and then I work hard to obtain the best results possible given their circumstances.
International And Domestic Adoptions
I have extensive experience as a lawyer with all types of adoptions, including:
- Private (nonagency)
- 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, I can assist you with the difficult, but rewarding, transition to parenthood.
I can also assist with all of the details and processes involved when you are attempting to adopt your spouse’s child.
First and foremost, I will seek termination of the other parent’s parental rights. If they refuse to give up their rights, I will persuasively advocate how your adoption of the child would be in his or her best interest.
