Adoption Law

The adoption process is a very emotional one, and it is always wise to take a step back from time to time to evaluate the situation and make sure that everything is in order. A common dilemma faced by potential adoptive parents is choosing between adopting a child in the United States and adopting a child from another country. A decision must also be made regarding whether to adopt using the agency adoption process or private adoption. An experienced adoption attorney can be very beneficial in this critical decision thus ensuring a positive outcome.

Each country has its own laws governing adoption. Each state also has its own laws regarding adoption. Understanding these laws and how they may interact across national borders and state lines is important to being successful in your efforts to adopt a child. You and your family do not need the added stress of an adoption plan falling through. An experienced adoption attorney can assist you and help make sure that this does not happen to you and your family.

Most states have instituted regulations by which parties to an adoption may obtain non-identifying and identifying information from an adoption record. This is done while still protecting the interests of all parties.

Non-identifying information includes the date and place of the adoptee's birth; age, race, religion, physical description, ethnicity, education, medical history and occupation of the birth parents; reason for placing the child for adoption; and the existence of other children born to each birth parent.
