There are several steps that must be taken during the adoption process. In order to make sure your parental rights are protected, you want to make sure you take every step carefully. One of the most important steps is to terminate the parental rights of the birth parents.

With a considerable amount of paperwork to fill out and a required court hearing in front of an orphan's court judge, the entire adoption process can take several months. We will be there at your side throughout the process to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible.

Termination of Parental Rights

As you go through the adoption process, you want to give notice to the birth parents, who will eventually be out of the picture, including the father. If you fail to get their consent at the start, you could run into problems down the line. We will help you get all the necessary contact information and notify all parties involved so we can facilitate your adoption today and protect your rights in the future.

Guardianship and Adoption Alternatives

Adoption is not a viable option for all families, but there are alternatives out there, such as guardianship and custody. We will look for the solution that will cost the least and be most practical for your family. Guardianship requires a court hearing, while an agreed child custody agreement can be done without one, depending on the facts. We will take a close look at your case to determine what options work for you.
