Foreign and Domestic Adoption

The adoption of a baby is a wonderful event for a family. After taking the time to find an available child, you finally are ready to adopt. It is important to know how to navigate through the state and interstate adoption process. Once you find a child you would like to adopt, contact an attorney at the Law Offices of Mary Ann Beaty, P.C., in Dallas, Texas, to learn about the adoption process.

For 40 years, our firm has been assisting families with the joyous process of adopting a child. We concentrate on ensuring you understand all aspects of the baby adoption process: Lawyer Mary Ann Beaty represents people in:

  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Contested adoptions
  • Agency adoptions
  • Private adoptions
  • Grandparent adoptions
  • Domestic and foreign adoptions
  • Petitions terminating parental rights

Foreign Adoptions

Many families turn to foreign countries for a baby adoption. Once you find a suitable child to adopt you must work with the U.S. government and the state of Texas to ensure the validity of your adoption. Given the recent changes in homeland security regulations, it is especially important to have our firm go over your foreign adoptions. Mary Ann Beaty can reaffirm a foreign baby adoption to protect its legal validity.

Domestic Adoptions

We will assist you in both closed and open adoptions of children. In a closed adoption, you will have no personal contact with the biological parents and the parties' identities are not known to each other. In an open adoption, you and the biological parents can choose to exchange information. We will guide you through a baby adoption with adoption agencies and private parties.

To learn how to adopt a child, contact the Law Offices of Mary Ann Beaty, P.C. for an initial consultation with a lawyer. We assist families in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex and throughout North Texas.
