Protecting and Pursuing Foster Parents’ Interests
If you are a foster parent and want to adopt a foster child, we can help you make the proper petition to child protective services and the courts. We will help you prove that making the bond permanent is in the best interest of the child and help preserve your foster parent rights. It is preferable to be involved prior to termination in some circumstances that the child’s placement can be protected. The legislature frequently changes the legal requirement that allows foster parents to become involved in this type of litigation.
We have experience handling these sensitive foster parent adoption matters, much like the evaluation process that was used to determine if you could be a foster parent.
In the event that you are told that the children will be placed back with their biological parents and out of the foster care system, even in cases where the foster parents have been told that the children will be eligible for adoption, our Houston foster parent adoption attorneys can help you fight this decision or help work out an arrangement for continued contact because a close bond has been formed.
