Texas Termination of Parental Rights Attorney
Tad Nelson has practiced in family law in the Galveston County area since 1995. He has substantial experience in parental rights cases and understands the urgency and gravity of the situation. The courts are concerned with the safety, welfare and best interests of the child, but demand a high standard of proof before terminating a parent’s rights and relationship with a child. We have access to investigators, psychologists, and other experts to support our client’s position.
Our legal team has been involved in all scenarios:
- Voluntary termination in stepparent adoption cases, such as terminating the rights of a biological father who has not been involved with the child
- Involuntary termination in adoption cases, as when the biological parent has personal problems or documented abuse but is fighting to retain custody or visitation rights
- Child Protective Services (CPS) initiating termination of parental rights on the basis of child abuse, severe neglect or abandonment, or the parent’s imprisonment or drug addiction
In voluntary termination, we work to locate the absent parent and ensure that all the paperwork is in order so that the parent who is relinquishing rights will stay out of the picture.
In involuntary termination, we typically represent the custodial parent and would-be stepparent, grandparents seeking custody, or legal guardians paving the way to formally adopt. However, we also represent parents whose kids have been taken away by overzealous CPS caseworkers and now face termination proceedings.

Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
