Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be assisting you today with your post.
I am preparing my response to your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
My partner and I are about to marry and would like to adopt him. Will she have the right to keep us from doing? We are certain she is comfortable with the way things have been.
Response: She can object to the adoption. However, based on the information that you have provided here, you can file papers to waive her consent to the adoption since she abandoned the child a long time ago and has not shown any interest to be reunited with the child. So, her objection would be more than likely to be overruled by the Court and the adoption would be allowed to proceed. For general information on Texas adoption, click here.
If you do not have any follow-up question(s), kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.
Thank you for your cooperation.
