The Rights of Biological Grandparents of Adopted Children
Adopting a child is a huge change for the adopted child, the child’s new family, and the biological family of the child. For the adopted child, many things may be changing. They may be going to a new school, living in a new home, and meeting many new people. Amidst all of these new experiences, it may be in the best interest of the child to retain a familiar relationship to balance the host of new experiences they are dealing with.
Adoption is a challenging experience for every person involved. To make this process as smooth and rewarding as possible, it is important to have a knowledgeable legal team working to guide prospective adoptive parents. If you are considering adoption in Texas, please contact the Denton family lawyers at Alexander & Associates by calling 972-420-6560.
The state of Texas considers adoptions and all visitation rights with the best interest of the child in mind. In Texas, though adoptive parents take on all of the legal responsibilities of the biological parent, this does not cause the revocation of the rights of biological grandparents.
Biological grandparents typically retain visitation rights in the case of adoption in the state of Texas. This has been determined to be in the best interest of children and within the rights of biological family members. Having a measure of consistent family interaction can be crucial for the healthy development of an adopted child.
