Common Types of Adoptions

When you begin to think about the adoption process, you may think about the most common or "traditional" type of adoption. This is typically when a couple goes to an adoption agency and adopts a child who does not have parents. While this is a valid form of adoption, there are other forms of adoption which are varied to fit different situations and families. We can work with you to find which type of adoption meets your family's needs and help you understand what to expect.

We handle all types of adoptions, including:

  • Foster adoption
  • Infant adoption
  • International adoption
  • Adoption after divorce or step-child adoption

What Is the Role of an Adoption Attorney?

Before you begin the adoption process, it’s important to seek knowledgeable legal assistance from a family law firm, such as Groves Law Offices. Our adoption attorney will help you:

  • File the adoption petition with the court
  • Prepare all associated forms for the adoption process
  • Complete legal paperwork with social workers
  • Reserve a court date
  • Work with the legal representatives of biological parents
  • Handle communication with adoption agencies
  • Coordinate home visit studies
  • Attend court hearings
  • Address any issues that may arise

The adoption process can be complicated and daunting when handled alone. Trust our firm to lead you through the process so you may focus on welcoming your new child into your home.
