Adoption is one area of the practice of family law that most clients find to involve a very positive interaction with an attorney – and a good reason to have one! There is no doubt that the opportunity to add to the family through adoption is one of the most cherished times in life. Whether it is a step-parent adoption, a third party adoption or consulting on the effects of an adoption, it is important to understand the varied and complex rights of all parties involved. It is important to have proper guidance through all of the steps of not only the technical court proceedings, but the decisions leading up to that and implementing related strategies afterward, such as adjusting estate plans, related family law cases, and other matters.
