The Process of Adoption
Adopting a child is an incredibly exciting and satisfying event which can bring much joy to the new parents. In order to reach that goal, however, there are a lot of steps that need to be taken and the process can be quite involved. If not addressed competently, this may result in significant delays or, at worst, as denial of adoption. A Kirkland divorce attorney can do much to assist you in this endeavor and save you undue stress by helping to keep the process well managed.
Adoptions in Bellevue and Redmond
At Carillon Point Family Lawyers, we wish to facilitate your adoption as best we can and our experience and knowledge helps us in doing so. Adoption may be sought in a number of circumstances, including:
- Interstate or international adoption
- Step-parent adoption
- Adoption by grandparents
- Surrogate adoptions
- Adoptions by unmarried couples or single persons
Each of these situations has its own peculiarities and requirements. Our familiarity with such assists us in being able to predict and competently address many points that may arise. Even in the simplest of cases, there is much exacting paperwork involved. Beyond the standard petition, certain cases may include such things as termination of parental rights or issues of paternity. We can advise on and take care of all legal factors involved. Our firm can even assist if you are working with an adoption agency and can advise you and coordinate as needed. We recognize that an adoption is one of the most significant and joyful occurrences in your life and are honored to be able to assist.
