Adult Adoption: Texas Information
When a child becomes an adult, he or she often wants to formally acknowledge the person or persons who raised him. Usually it is a step-parent, but sometimes it can be another adult who has assumed a parenting role for a child. It is a very simple process.
Biological Parents Do Not Have to Agree
As an adult, this decision is independent of the proposed adoptive child’s biological parents. They are not entitled to be notified or to consent to the proceeding.
