Types of Adoption
Our law firm is dedicated to helping families grow through various types of adoption, including:
- Stepparent adoption: We help you adopt your spouse’s or domestic partner’s children.
- Grandparent adoption: If parents are unable to care for their children, we help grandparents step in and adopt them.
- Private adoption: We go over all the details and craft agreements between the biological parent or parents and the adoptive parents.
Some people may be tempted to skip the legalities of adopting a child, especially in stepparent or grandparent adoptions. It is extremely important to go through the adoption process. Without it, an uninvolved biological parent can reappear years later and demand custody or visitation rights. This can lead to a complex legal situation that places a child in a very difficult position. If it appears that your adoption case will be litigated, it is especially important to work with an attorney who understands exactly what is at stake. Our lawyer has the knowledge and understanding of adoption matters to help you get through this challenge.
In every type of adoption, we realize that we are dealing with people’s lives, and we take that responsibility seriously. That is why we are thorough in our preparation, handling the details meticulously and persisting if obstacles arise. We make sure that all required paperwork is completed correctly, arranging for background checks, social studies, and medical information submission. As in all of our work, we are dedicated to protecting your rights and helping you through the process as efficiently as possible.
