In an agency adoption, a birth parent relinquishes his or her parental rights to the adoption agency by executing a affidavit of relinquishment of parental rights which appoints the agency as the managing conservator of the child. The agency then places the child for adoption with prospective adoptive parents selected by either the birth parent or the agency.
We have extensive experience representing adoption agencies, prospective adoptive parents and birth parents in termination of parental rights and adoption proceedings.
NOTE: Our law firm is not a licensed child-placing agency. Texas law prohibits attorneys from "placing" children for adoption. We represent parents (birth or prospective adoptive parents) in the adoption process not the "matching" process.
