New Families May Face Obstacles, But We’re Here To Assist You
Stepparents play an important role in the life of a child, often becoming primary caretakers in many ways, including emotionally, financially and other ways. Securing recognition of that role through adoption can mean obtaining a termination of a birth parent’s rights. That can be a complex issue to work through. But, with our decades of experience, we can help you make your dreams of adoption a reality.
When complications arise, our lawyer will step in to work directly and closely with your family. We understand the conflicting rules regarding adoptions. The most important factor is determining what’s in the best interest of the child so that your family has a solid legal foundation and a chance at success.
