We are in Texas and adopted our grand kids here. We had to go through the whole thing. Home study, Hire a separate Attorney for the kids, CPS was involved in another state but not here so we just subpoenaed the records. The parents surrendered their rights because they had been advised the court was going to terminate their rights. Even so things went very smoothly, very little friction, no one really fighting it. It still took almost 6 months to get all the stuff done. However, because parents rights were terminated the adoption order was final that day. Many times adoption orders don't become final for 6 months. Our total cost for both attorneys and court costs was almost $15,000 for two children. Good Luck. Any other questions just message me.
