Exploring Private Adoptions
The private adoption process is not simple; there are many rules and regulations that must be followed to ensure a valid adoption is free from unforeseen roadblocks. If you are considering adoption, it is in your best interest to seek out the advice of an experienced family law attorney who can guide you through the process and protect your rights.

Birth Parents Can Choose The Adopting Family
In private adoptions, the birth mother or birth parents are able to choose the family who will adopt their child. Or, in some cases, the prospective parents are able to choose the birth mother. It is advisable that both the prospective parents and birth parents have legal representation in addition to the services provided by the adoption agency.
One of the key benefits of private adoption is that the child does not have to go through the potentially traumatizing experience of living in foster care or long-term state care.
Attention To Detail Is The Key To A Successful Private Adoption
Even though both sides are intimately involved in the adoption process, things can still go wrong and result in extreme complications. Our attorneys are skilled at resolving issues before they become roadblocks in the process or threaten to invalidate the adoption months or years after it is finalized.
