We Can Guide You Through the New York Adoption Process
If you are adopting directly from the child's birth mother, there are many legal issues which must be addressed, such as terminating her parental rights and taking care to prevent any possibility of challenges to the adoption in the future. We will guide you through every step of the adoption process, including matters related to interstate and international adoption. We accept a limited number of clients at any time, which allows us to provide you with the attention and personalized service you deserve at this sensitive time.
Let Our Adoption Attorney Help Grow Your Family
We can also help you carry out a stepparent adoption so that you can assume parental rights over your spouse's children. This is desirable as it gives you full parental responsibility in matters such as healthcare, but it requires the consent of both your spouse and the other parent as it will sever the other parent's legal ties to the child. It will also most likely result in termination of child support. Every family is unique, and we will take the time to understand all your concerns and develop a plan for you.
