Parental consent and adoption

Many couples in the Dallas area are not able to have children biologically and be considering adoption as a way to have a family. In other cases, a Texas may just have a kind heart and want to provide a home for a child who is in need of good care and support. In still other cases, it may be a stepparent or other close relative who has been raising a child for quite some time and just wants to make the relationship "official."

Former congressman and wife may be close to divorce settlement

No two divorce proceedings are alike. Just as every person is unique, and every couple is unique, every breakup and divorce is unique as well. Some Dallas divorces go rather smoothly, with the spouses able to agree on the main possible points of contention. Other divorces don't go so smoothly. The divorce of one former congressman and his wife is very much an example of a divorce that has not gone so smoothly.
