Why Should You Choose An Adoption Attorney?
An adoption attorney will:
We will provide an unbiased explanation of adoption procedures and develop a legally secure plan tailored to your needs.
We will assess the risks involved, including determining what payments are permissible and ensuring that birth parents are treated fairly and their rights are legally terminated before placement is finalized.
We will clarify your options, if any, for post-placement arrangements with birth parents, making sure your interests and those of the child are served.
We will explain your rights and adoption laws in your state or refer you to attorneys who practice in other states or internationally.
We will review and negotiate the adoption agency contract to protect your interests.
You should contact an attorney as early as possible in the decision-making process.
Learn about the specific types of adoption services the attorney provides. Ask what percentage of the practice is dedicated to adoption and how many adoption proceedings the attorney has handled.
Choose an attorney who is experienced in the type of adoption you are considering.
Know what the attorney charges, how fees are structured and that you can afford the services.
Ask questions, request references, share your concerns and provide the attorney with all relevant documents. Ask for a written retainer agreement that outlines what the attorney charges, how fees are structured and other details regarding fees and fee payment.
