Supporting Your Family Through The Adoption Process

You start the adoption process excited about adding a new family member, but nervous that something could go wrong during the legal process. There are many legal hurdles to go through during an adoption and an attorney who understands how the process works can relieve any worries you may feel. Prospective adoptive parents in Bucks County and Montgomery County work with me, family law attorney Michael E. Eisenberg, on building families through the adoption process.

There are as many kinds of adoptions as there are families. I can assist with grandparent adoptions, stepparent adoptions, blended family adoptions, private adoptions, open adoptions, and correlated procedures, including termination of parental rights or notification of the birth father.

Representing Your Best Interests In The Adoption Process

When you go through an agency, they arrange all aspects of the adoption process to ensure smooth sailing. Since agencies have professionals who help families adopt for a living, these cases tend to proceed quickly. With a private adoption or an intra-family adoption, there are no professionals coaching you and your loved ones through the process.

I can walk you through what to expect at every phase of the process and always represent your best interests. Knowing what comes next can reduce your level of stress during a lengthy adoption wait.

Helping You Follow Adoption Laws

Protect yourself legally by retaining an adoption attorney, since there are many laws that affect adoptions.

  • With all adoption cases, the birth parents must terminate their parental rights in a court of law. This process differs based on the relationship status between biological parents. An attorney can send notification to an alleged biological father who was not married to the birth mother, and ensure the birth mother has completed all paperwork to terminate her rights.
  • In the event of a stepparent adoption, only the relinquishing parent has his or her rights terminated and the natural parent remains as a parent while the new stepparent adopts.
