Child Adoption Services
Our firm represents individuals who wish to adopt a child from the United States or a foreign country. If you're thinking of starting a family or adding another member to your present family, adopting a child is a wonderful way to do it. He or she may be a healthy newborn, a teenager, or a special needs child. The target of your adoption efforts doesn't have to be a child who has already been born--you may have identified a birth mother who will consent in writing to terminating her parental rights in your favor. Adopting a child is the ultimate gift of devotion and nothing short of extraordinary. Count on our adoption attorney to help you grow your family.
Making Stepparents Full-Fledged Parents
If you are a stepparent who has raised the biological children of your spouse, you may want to take your commitment one step further by adopting them. Stepparent adoptions are common, but like adoptions in general, they can cause serious headaches if not handled correctly.
The Adoption Process
When parents begin the adoption process, they enter unknown territories. Laws governing the process of adoption may cover more than one state, and the emotions of adoptive parents may vary immensely during the adopting process. It takes time for the child and parent to develop a natural connection. As you embark on this journey, you'll discover that adoption can be rewarding and affordable, and adoption will forever change your life and the life of that child.
