Independent Adoption

A independent adoption involves an adoption without an adoption agency where the prospective adoptive parents and expectant birth parents locate one another, usually online profiles or introductions by mutual friends, relatives or acquaintances. Jennifer assists families with negotiating a birth plan and post-adoption contact agreement.  She also represents birth parents or adoptive parents in the termination of parental rights and adoption finalization.  

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 termination of parental rights or adoption finalization proceedings.  We do not match families with expecting parents.
