Offering Support as You Grow Your Family

Adopting a child is one of the happiest and most rewarding moments in a person’s life. There may be lots of steps between making the decision to adopt and giving a child a new home—we are here to support you all the way.

At Goranson Bain Ausley, our adoption attorneys are pleased to have assisted many Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Granbury, and Plano couples with private adoptions. There are several ways to adopt, and our attorneys can help explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Their expansive knowledge base can help you decide which path is right for your family. They can also assist in developing strategies for potential issues such as:

  • Establishing legal guidelines for open/closed adoptions
  • Creating safeguards to protect adoptees involved in relative adoptions
  • Responding to biological parents/surrogates who petition for rights

The decision to adopt a child can be one of the most rewarding, joyous, and altruistic moments of a person’s life.  It can be the start of a richer, happier future for both parent and child.

A primary concern of couples who choose to adopt is consent. In addition, many decisions must be made about the level of contact, if any, the birth parents will have with the child and the finalization of the adoption.
