Our Adoption Services
Individuals who are at least age 25 or who are married can adopt a child who is 10 or more years younger than the individual petitioning for adoption. We can help you for matters involving a broad range of different adoptions, including:
- Private adoption: Private adoptions are situations where the birth mother places her child with a family of her own choosing. These adoptions often occur when the child is an infant, although they can also happen when the child is a toddler or older.
- Stepparent adoption: Stepparents may seek to gain parental rights of their stepchildren via adoption. In order for this petition to proceed, the biological parent must either willingly terminate their parental rights or the stepparent must petition the court to review the situation and make a ruling.
- Grandparent adoption: Grandparents and other family members may seek to adopt a child when the birth parents cannot care for the child any longer.
- International adoption: If you are seeking to adopt a child who is currently living in a foreign country, our attorneys work to gain approval through both the State Department and the child’s country of origin.
