Our Adoption Practice

Our attorneys will handle all matters related to your adoption, from your home study to the preparation and filing of any documentation required by the courts. We provide thorough legal counsel to individuals considering or involved in any type of adoption proceeding, including:

  • Stepparent or family adoptions — If you have remarried and want your new spouse to adopt your minor children, or if you have family members who lack the capacity to serve as parents to their own children, we can help you take all steps to legally adopt those children, including securing a termination of parental rights from biological parents.
  • Agency or private adoptions — Whether you choose to work through an adoption agency or with birth parents directly, we will be your liaison, ensuring that your interests are protected.
  • Domestic or international adoptions — We can help you secure all necessary paperwork to meet the requirements for a foreign adoption and to obtain citizenship rights for your adopted child. We can help you complete adoptions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or across the country.
