Are you seeking a private or independent adoption rather than working with an adoption agency?
Utilize Super Lawyers to hire an adoption attorney.
Adoption attorneys assist clients looking to adopt outside of an adoption agency during what’s known as a private or independent adoption.
Adoption attorneys have a good understanding of state laws, such as whether or not there is a wait time before consent to an adoption, and federal laws surrounding adoption proceedings.
Adoption attorneys are also well-versed in the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children law.
They know how to handle interstate adoptions, address father’s rights issues especially if the father is in the military, and understand the special laws surrounding Native American adoptions.
Possessing a qualified adoption attorney is vital as they can help prove the adoption will benefit the child and terminate the rights of the biological parents.
