Adopting a child can be a joyous and special moment in parents’ lives. It is a sensitive but rewarding time because of the potential to provide a home to someone for the chance they deserve.  Sometimes, the process can be lengthy and, at times, frustrating. Emotionally, adoptions can be overwhelming, but if processed correctly, it can lead to incredible life memories for the family. An individual adoption requires knowledgeable and experienced attorneys to help make the adoption process smoother because of all the complexities involved.

The adoption process takes time; with that comes a different level of legal obligations for all the parties involved. Those obligations can be minor or major depending on the scenario since no two individual adoption processes are the same. No matter where you are in the process, it can be fraught with intimidating and stressful obstacles.

Experienced Family and Adoption Lawyer Providing Support

Adoption is a serious and sensitive matter. This is where Ball Morse Lowe can help. We will work diligently to ensure the adoption process goes as smoothly as possible.  Our team of adoption attorneys will also help you detail each step, so you are not going into something blindly.

Helping you through the adoption process is an important step in achieving your family goals. Some of the actions you will likely see during the process can include:

  •        Detailed paperwork
  •        Home assessments
  •        Background checks
  •        Reference checks
  •        Eligibility screenings and much more

The adoption process is not straightforward, which is why being guided through the legal process is of vital importance. As with any form of adoption, proper counsel will help you understand your rights and sketching out the proper road map. While these steps are emotional and sensitive, we will help guide you through the process and work with all parties to ensure there are no surprises.

Other Types of Adoption

There are different types of adoption that require succinct legal expertise:

  1.   Adult adoption – You can adopt an adult into the family under special circumstances, such as formalizing a parental relationship or caring for a disabled adult or mentally challenged individual.
  2.   Agency adoption – While more common than other forms of adoption, agency adoption provides adoptive parents a chance to grow a family through a licensed agency.
  3.   Stepparent adoption – The relationship between a stepparent and stepchild can be a special one. It is also one that requires proper legal matters regarding decision-making and rights.
  4. Same-Sex adoption – Same-sex couples can adopt children, but as with other types of adoption, the legal matters involved must be considered.

No matter what the motivation is for adoption, it is a time in a family’s lives to grow their family and show adoptive people the love and support they need.
