There are times when a stepparent in Texas wishes to legally adopt their stepchild.

Child Protective Services is a program that conducts investigations when allegations are made that the parents, relatives or members of a household have abused or neglected a child. Sometimes, the caseworker refers the individual of concern to services such as counseling and classes that could help them resolve their issues and understand how to take care of and punish the child through non-harmful methods.
