Our team of lawyers work to make sure your child’s adoption is thoroughly complete and legally binding. We work alongside various adoption agencies and foster care facilities. We have experience in private adoption and can provide legal advice and counseling for anyone interested in hiring a private company or family. Whatever your adoption process is, our family law lawyers will work with you to ensure that you are supported and advocated for. When you adopt a child, you assume all the rights and responsibilities of a biological parent. Adoptive parents are required by law to provide a safe and supportive home for their children and make crucial medical, financial, and social decisions.
Both private adoptions and foster care adoptions require approval of your capability to be a safe parent. All prospective adopters must undergo a background check to ensure they have no criminal record and establish that they are stable enough to be present in the child’s life and provide for them financially. If issues do arise our adoption lawyers will assist you in court and defend your parenting abilities.
