Are You Ready To Adopt Your Family Member?
Many of the cases we handle are family adoptions. These are adoption cases that involve family members adopting a child who is already a member of the family. We represent grandparents adopting grandchildren, aunts and uncles adopting nieces and nephews, and more. We frequently assist stepparents in stepchild adoptions. Our goal is to move quickly through the process to complete the adoption. Call us at 765-588-3952 to learn more.
Private Placement And Agency Adoptions
We represent families in private placement and agency adoptions. Each of these types of adoption comes with its own challenges. When handling a private placement adoption, we will take care to see that no legal requirement is overlooked. In agency adoptions, we can review all documentation and help you understand your rights and the process. We handle private placement and agency adoptions for all couples, including LGBT couples.
Contested Adoptions Can Be Complex Without An Experienced Adoption Attorney
One requirement in stepparent adoptions, grandparent adoptions and other types of adoption is termination of the parental rights of the birth parent. In some cases, the birth parent may not want to give up these rights. These are referred to as contested adoptions. We are a dedicated trial law firm prepared to resolve these disputes positively.
