Adoption Process

Adoption is a powerful process. It is a way of affirming your commitment and love to a child that is not even biologically related to you.

The adoption process speaks to the best of what we are as human beings, offering a way to turn a biological stranger into the closest kind of family member.

Legally speaking, adoption turns a person into the emotional, psychological, financial, and legal parent of a child. What distinguishes an adopted parent from a legal guardian is that a legal guardian possesses all the obligations of a parent, but the actual parental relationship still exists between the child and the biological mother and father. Adoption severs that tie, reassigning total parenthood to the adoptive parent.

Adoption Attorney

Lawyers can play a crucial role in a successful adoption. They can file all necessary paperwork and represent the adopted parents in all necessary court hearings and appointments. Lawyers can even conduct adoptions between private parties, often serving as the liaison between hopeful couples and parents looking to offer their baby up for adoption. When they conduct adoptions themselves, attorneys can ensure that adoptive parents have full access to a child’s health records and medical history. They can also ensure that the biological parents or mother is emotionally prepared for putting the baby up for adoption.
