Adoption is a happy time in the life of a family. But adoption is a complicated process with many legal rules. Has the biological parent been given notice of the adoption? What if the bio parent objects to the adoption? Background checks, home studies. We value parenthood as a fundamental right in this country so the Courts are very strict in seeing that all legal requirements are met. Perhaps more that any other area of the law having your i’s dotted and your t’s crossed is an absolute must. It is a complex process. But doable. And worth it.
Make sure that you undertake the process with an attorney who has the experience to help you.
