Protecting You And Your Children: Adoption Lawyers On Your Side
There are several steps to the adoption process, all of which depend on the circumstances of your situation. Adoptions where all parties give consent can involve fewer steps than adoptions where a parent’s identity or the parents’ whereabouts are unknown. Our lawyers will help you through every step, from creating the petition to when the court orders a final order.
At first, the adoption process can seem very invasive (such as home studies) to you and your family. This is where we step in. Over the years, we have helped our clients with all types of adoptions, including:
- Private adoptions
- Stepparent adoptions
- Domestic and international adoptions
Not only will we educate you about how the adoption process in Virginia works, but we will make certain you are aware of how important your role is every step of the way.
