Adoption is the process through which a child becomes the legal equivalent of a biological child. It is one of the most gratifying parts of our practice to assist the adoption of children into loving homes. We handle both contested and uncontested adoptions. There are numerous requirements that must be followed to legally adopt a child. The requirements will differ depending on the relationship between the child and the petitioning party.
There are several different types of adoptions, including adoptions by family members, foreign adoptions, and independent adoptions. Generally, in adoption cases, the parental rights of the biological parents must be terminated. Our firm can assist you during this process.
You may feel that you are able to handle the adoption process by yourself, however, the assistance of one of our attorneys can greatly benefit and expedite your case. Please let us know how we can help you today in making your family complete or keeping it intact.
