The legal process of adoption can be confusing. Adoption involves a great deal of paperwork and, if the technical legal rules are not followed exactly, a judge may reject the petition for adoption. You need an attorney with the skills to make sure that the adoption process goes smoothly.
At the Birmingham law office of attorney Joe Ingram, I guide families through the adoption process. Legally, adoption is an action in which a step-parent, relative or non-relative chooses to legalize a parent-child relationship. In an adoption, it is necessary to collect information, including adoption forms, birth certificates and information about the child's natural father.
I have the experience and dedication required so that you can leave the legal worrying to me while you focus on bringing a new child into your family.
I often handle step-parent adoptions. I recognize that each family is different and view step-parent adoptions as a chance for a child to form a significant, legally recognized relationship with a new father figure.
When biological parents are unable to care for their children for various reasons, including death, child abandonment, mental health or addiction issues, grandparent adoption is often a good solution for families. My law office supports clients through grandparent adoptions, including termination of parental rights. I help you clearly understand how the law may affect you and your family, and I work hard to help make sure that you get the best possible results.
I am happy to help families bring children into their lives. So, my law firm offers adoption representation that meets your needs.
