My daughter has gotten her life together and moved to another city with the children, it took her six months to do so and the grandparents knew the timeline and plans for the whole six months and then after my daughter moved with the grandchildren, the grandparents filed for custody. The grandchildren have been with their Mother in the new city living in a house and going to new schools since Jan 4.

My daughter and I want to file for legal adoption in Tarrant County, would that prevent the adoptive parents from taking the grandchildren. We have already checked into how much it costs and how to file it. If I was her legal mother on paper, would that help the case in any way?
My daughter has provided a loving, emotionally stable environment for her children and the children are being well taken care of, in school, regular doctor/dental checkups,etc. The grandparents even sent the Sheriff to their house who gave a positive report in the very beginning. The grandfather is dying of cancer, the grandmother has severe emotional issues, and I am trying to find out if there is something I can file to get the grandmother evaluated. My daughter and I will go ahead with the adoption, is it immediate once it is filed? Thanks for your help
We will just go ahead with the legal adoption and hope for the best with the lawsuit.
Thanks for your help. If I think of any more questions, am I able to message you again?
Sure, you can always get back to me by putting "For Barrister" in any subsequent questions. The moderators at JA will then get the question to me.
You are very welcome.
