Whether you are single or married, you may be interested in adopting a child. Lots of different circumstances can cause people to want to adopt, with the most common being a married couple who is unable to have their own children for physical reasons, yet  still wants to have a family.

With so many children in the world needing a loving home, you would think adoption - matching the right child with the right willing and loving adoptive parent - would be an easy task to accomplish. Sometimes it can be, but more often the task can become discouraging, confusing, and wrought with anxiety. No one wants to find a child and fall in love with it, only to face a custody battle down the road because the paperwork was not done properly.

With the help of a skilled adoption attorney like James A. Robertson however, this situation can be avoided. Using proper legal procedure, he will ensure that your rights are protected, giving you the confidence and peace of mind you deserve.

There are many types of adoption available to families in Brazoria County, but all of them fall under two broad categories; open, or closed. Closed adoption means the birth parent will no longer be involved in any way with the adoption family family or the child. In fact, they may not even know who they are or where they live.

An open adoption allows for the birth parent to be connected in some way with the adoptive parent and possibly even the child. In this category the adoption family would decide how open they would want the adoption to be - whether photos will exchanged or visits between the child and the birth  parents or parent are arranged.

The following are the types of open or closed adoption available in the United States:
