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.
