Our law firm will gather the information requested by adoption agencies, prepare you for your home study and criminal background check and file the necessary paperwork with the court. Once the adoption is finalized, we can walk you through the steps you must take to provide health insurance for your child and receive any tax credits available to you.
In many cases of adoption, the biological parents need to consent to terminate their parental rights. This means that they will no longer have a right to visitation/parenting time or an obligation to pay child support. The adoptive parents and biological parents should also discuss if and when there will be contact between the biological parents and the child.
