Compliance during adoption process is critical

Adoption is often thought of outside of the context of a divorce. People may want to adopt a child in the United States or internationally, but this is the common idea when it comes to adoption. However, there are plenty of adoption cases that exist within the context of a divorce. When a divorce is on the table and an adoption is possible, the parties involved need to know where they legally stand and how the process could play out.

There are many different ways that adoption could be involved during a divorce or after one. A stepparent may try to adopt a child; adult children may be adopted; and parents may seek to terminate the parental rights of their former spouse, in addition to other possibilities for adoption in the context of a divorce.

There are many legal steps you need to take in order to ensure that your adoption is done properly. Getting a biological parent to go along with an adoption in these circumstances can be difficult, but if you consult with an experienced family law attorney, you can rest assured that the process will be done properly. We at Goddard & Malmquist are eminently qualified in this regard.

We can also help you if you are trying to adopt a child in the U.S. or internationally outside of the context of divorce. You will be subject to a lot of scrutiny and there are many guidelines and rules you must follow to succeed with your adoption. Making sure you are complaint and helping you along the way is what we excel at.
