Legal, Financial And Family Considerations Concerning Adoption
Filing the petition for adoption is relatively easy. There are other challenges that must be overcome.
One of the most important steps in the adoption process is to obtain the unconditional and complete consent of the biological parent who is giving up the child. This is not always easy, and there can be obstacles to clearing this hurdle. If this is not achieved, the biological parent could attempt to undo the adoption at some point in the future. Our attorneys are skilled advocates and will work hard to achieve this important milestone.
We are also attuned to family considerations and can help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a parent. Once the adoption has been completed, we can update your will and other estate documents.
A home visit by a social worker may be required in cases involving third-party adoptions. If this is necessary, we can explain what to expect and help you prepare for this important meeting.
Our family law attorneys understand the adoption process and are focused on success. Burns Law Group, PC, welcomes the opportunity to serve you.
