We are often contacted by patrons who are interested in adopting their stepchildren. To assist in answering questions regarding stepparent adoption, we added an answer to our frequently asked legal questions page.
In addition to addressing this topic, our frequently asked questions page provides answers to many of the other most common legal questions that we receive. While we are unable to provide legal advice or address your specific situation, the information on these pages may help you to answer your own question. Examples of other questions related to family law include:
- Can a minor legally emancipate themselves from their parents? What is emancipation?
- Do I have a legal right to see my grandchild?
- Can a 17-year-old move out and leave home?
- How old do you have to be in order to be considered an adult? What is the "age of consent" in Texas?
