Adoptions
Adopting a child is a legally complex process, with many variables depending on whether you're pursuing an international adoption, private adoption or agency adoption; are adopting a child from foster care; adopting a stepchild; or adopting a child born to a surrogate. At the same time, birth parents have their own sets of needs, rights and wishes that should be respected and honored. Laws also vary from state to state, so your experience with adoption may be different from the experiences of friends and family. Even if you are pursuing an open adoption, the adoptive parents should be represented by one adoption attorney and the birth parents by another adoption lawyer. Experienced adoptions law attorneys can help make the process move as smoothly as possible, while protecting your rights as either birth parents or adoptive parents.
