Adoption Law Spotlight

Generally speaking, the laws of adoption fall under the more general umbrella of Family Law.  Adoption lawyers establish the process by which a legal parent-child relationship is created between an individual or individuals who are not biologically parent and child (adoption process). The adoption process can involve the more "traditional" adoption of two parents seeking to adopt a non-biological child, or it can involve the adoption by one parent of a spouse's children, and vice versa.

The legal procedure by which a formal legal adoption is accomplished differs according to state law (which makes sense considering that states also have different family laws). An experienced adoption attorney works with the particular procedures and laws of your state, and has the additional experience that comes with practicing in the legal area. With the assistance and representation of a qualified and experienced adoption lawyer, you can be better assured that all the procedures are properly followed in the adoption process.
