Helping You Create a Family Through Adoption in Georgia
When another family member wants to become the parent of a child, we offer
the legal representation needed to help the family achieve results. We
understand that these issues can sometimes become complex and emotional,
but we are well prepared to guide our clients through the legal system.
Our team of knowledgeable
Atlanta family law attorneys understands the complicated state laws surrounding adoption, depending
on the relationship the adoptive parent has to the child. During confidential
consultations, our lawyers will walk you through the process and address
your adoption objectives, as well as those obstacles that may need to
be resolved such as:
Termination of Parental Rights: If there is a non-participating parent — like a parent who is incarcerated
or otherwise uninvolved in the child's life — termination of
parental rights must occur before the other relative can adopt. At The
Manely Firm, P.C., we understand the law concerning termination of parental
rights and we can help resolve any related complications.
Our goal at The Manely Firm, P.C., is to protect the rights and best interests
of all of our clients and their family members. We can do that by providing
competent legal assistance during the facilitation of an adoption and
throughout the entire process.
