We Work With All Types Of Illinois Adoptions
Our firm can provide a guiding hand through several different types of adoption processes, including:
- Step-parent adoptions
- Adoption of adult children
- Termination of parental rights
- Agency adoption of newborn infants and other children from the U.S. or internationally
If a situation exists where parental rights need to be terminated in order for an adoption to occur, we can also help make this happen, whether by having the biological parents agree to terminate their rights, or by filing a petition for a hearing regarding the matter.
When dealing with private adoptions, there are many requirements to consider. First, you must work with a licensed adoption agency. Secondly you will be subject to a home study and other requirements aimed at determining if the adoption is in the child’s best interest. Finally, there could be a significant waiting period before the adoption is approved. Dealing with all the necessary requirements and stipulations can be difficult and complicated. Working with an experienced adoption attorney can make the whole process easier to understand and accomplish.
