Know your rights under adoption law
We will take time to understand your unique circumstances and objectives so that we can develop the most appropriate solution for you and your family. Usually adoption proceedings will 1) terminate the parental rights of a parent or parents and 2) arrange adoptive and guardianship rights of another parent. It is important to know the law and to make sure that both processes are resolved to avoid future disputes.
We are experienced with cases involving:
- Stepparent adoptions
- Terminating parental rights
- Obtaining legal parent status
Stepparent adoption cases
In stepparent adoption cases, six months or more of no contact with child by a parent can be grounds for terminating a birth-parent’s rights and granting adoption to a step-parent. We will help you understand the process, make sure you understand your legal obligations as an adoptive parent, and get a decree from a judge for adoption.
Experienced advocacy and counsel you can trust
Our attorney will give you a no-cost telephone consultation so that you can describe your current situation and decide how you would like to proceed. We always provide honest, reliable feedback to our clients so that you have reasonable expectations for the outcome of your case.
