Related and Non-Related Adoptions
One of the most common types of adoptions occurs when a parent is related to a child by blood. Usually in situations like these, the biological parents have remarried and would like their new spouse to adopt their child. With our assistance, stepparent adoptions can be quite simple as long as consent is given by the other living biological parent.
Non-related adoptions occur when a person wishes to adopt a child to whom they are not biologically related. This type of adoption may be more time consuming and require more paperwork. It is important to have an experienced family law attorney to guide you through the process.
These types of adoptions can take place through an agency or private adoption.
Parents can work with licensed adoption agencies in cases where women are willing to place their child up for adoption in order to give them a better home. Our attorneys work with the adoption agencies and parents wishing to adopt a child through a licensed adoption agency.
