Helping You Create A Family Through Adoption
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 family law attorneys understand 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 with child custody.
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.
If you are concerned about your opportunity to adopt a child, the best way to learn about your options is to work with an experienced lawyer, like those at The Manely Firm, P.C.
