Home Adoptions

Adoption is an emotional process that requires a patient hand and gentle touch. If you’re considering an adoption, our family law experts are available to guide you through the complexity with compassion and support.

Our team will be by your side for every step of the process. We will file a comprehensive and accurate adoption petition on your behalf, assist in the termination of parental rights if necessary, and ensure that all placement investigations and reports are completed. When all the requirements of the adoption have been reported, we’ll appear on your behalf at the adoption hearing and draft the final adoption decree that will finalize your rights and responsibilities as a new parent.

When the decree is finally signed and the legal proceedings complete, we’ll also be there for a hug or a handshake as you welcome your child home.
