Dedicated Adoption Lawyers Who Care

We have helped numerous individuals and families find effective solutions for varying legal issues, like traditional and multifaceted adoptions, including:

  • Intrafamily adoption: An adoption that involves a family member (grandparent, aunt or uncle, stepparent, etc.). This type of adoption often happens after one parent remarries. The consent of the biological parents is necessary, or the termination of parental rights.
  • Private adoption: An adoption that is processed with an experienced adoption attorney, and typically not through an adoption agency. Usually, it involves an infant, child or siblings. We can help you navigate the challenging adoption process after identifying the child you are going to adopt.
  • Adult adoption: An adoption that involves a person over the age of 17. Adult adoptions are common in foster homes, families with adult stepchildren, or in situations involving mentally or physically disabled adults.

We invite you to arrange a consultation with an attorney at The Schwab Law Firm. Our attorneys are fully dedicated to helping you through these important milestones in your life.
