Cases We Handle
Infant adoptions are what most people think of when they think of adoption. Most often, a single, younger birth mother will create an adoption plan that involves giving her child up to an older, married couple. This couple will often be present for the birth and will leave with the baby from the hospital. In order to arrange for this process, our lawyers can handle matters relating to:
- Legal paperwork: There are a variety of legal documents that need to be completed by both the birth and adoption parents.
- Parental rights: A lawsuit may be filed to terminate the parental rights of the biological parents and to consummate the adoption.
- Birth certificates: New birth certificates may be requested for the adoptive parents.
- Wrongful adoption: Adoptive parents of an infant were not informed of the infant’s special needs or illnesses.
- Closed adoption: A process by which an infant is adopted by another family, and the records of the birth parents are sealed.
- Open adoption: A process by which an infant is adopted and the birth parents are revealed to the infant.
