You are right, you will want to use a Texas lawyer. It really should not be relevant the surrogacy process part. It is the same legal structure a step parent or LGBT parent would use to formally adopt their child. You should Google "step parent adoption texas" and second parent adoption texas" and I think you will get good results. I don't recall much of the process except writing some checks, filling some forms and waiting for a court date. At the court a family judge just talked to us for a few minutes and congratulated us and took pictures with us. Then we waited for the arrival of the formal adoption document. In our case, the point was in case I died or became seriously disabled I wanted my wife to have full, legal parental rights and not the possibility of someone in my family having the ability to legally challenge that because of the biological relation to me.

I have called few attorneys and most of them are not familiar with the surrogacy agreement and process we used. Did it took 3-4 months or more than that. If you can explain the process in more detail that might help other members also. Thanks a million for taking time to respond.
