Adoption

Adoption as a legal matter takes many forms and can vary from a relatively simple and straightforward legal proceeding to complex litigation, such as when the termination of a birth parent’s parental rights is contested by the birth parent. I encourage potential clients considering adoption to schedule a consultation as soon as possible to gain an understanding of the legal considerations in the adoption.

  • Agency Adoption
  • Adoption Alternatives such as Guardianship and Conservatorship
    and Special Power of Attorney
  • International Adoption
  • Interstate Adoption
  • Private Adoption
  • Relative Adoption, including Grandparent Adoption
  • Same-Sex Couple Adoption
  • Single-Parent Adoption
  • Stepparent Adoption (for additional information, please see this article)
  • Termination of Parental Rights

An initial consultation for a case assessment for the above matters is provided at no cost.
