Helping you with an upcoming adoption

Raising children is one of the most challenging and most rewarding experiences a person can have in life. Children can come into our lives many ways. Adoption is when an adult becomes a legal parent of a child that is not biologically their own. The biological parents have their parental rights terminated unless a contract allows them to keep or share certain rights with the adoptive parents.

There are actually many types of adoptions including:

  • Agency adoptions
  • Independent adoptions
  • Identified adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Second-parent adoptions
  • Relative adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
