Exploring The Private Adoption Process

You are here:

The private adoption process is not simple; there are many rules and regulations that must be followed to ensure a valid adoption is free from unforeseen roadblocks. If you are considering adoption, it is in your best interest to seek out the advice of an experienced family law attorney who can guide you through the process and protect your rights.

At Laura Dale & Associates, our Texas adoption lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in adoptions. We understand the issues that can arise in a private adoption and take great care to resolve issues before they become a problem for our clients.

Birth Parents Can Choose The Adopting Family

In private adoptions, the birth mother or birth parents are able to choose the family who will adopt their child. Or, in some cases, the prospective parents are able to choose the birth mother. It is advisable that both the prospective parents and birth parents have legal representation in addition to the services provided by the adoption agency.

One of the key benefits of private adoption is that the child does not have to go through the potentially traumatizing experience of living in foster care or long-term state care.

Attention To Detail Is The Key To A Successful Private Adoption

Even though both sides are intimately involved in the adoption process, things can still go wrong and result in extreme complications. Our attorneys are skilled at resolving issues before they become roadblocks in the process or threaten to invalidate an adoption months or years after it is finalized.

Your private adoption is too important to leave in the hands of an inexperienced attorney. Contact us today to speak to a knowledgeable lawyer about your adoption needs.
