West Columbia Family Law Lawyers You Can Trust
It is important to know that there are unique nuances in adoption law.
For example, while all residents can adopt a child, children can only
be placed with residents of the state, except under special circumstances
(such as when there is an out-of-state relative).
There are many important factors that must be handled in terms of adoption, such as:
- Getting the birth parents' permission to adopt their child.
- Getting the child's permission if he / she is 14 years or older.
- You must have all childcare costs approved by the court.
- A statement must be sworn and signed by the person / agency giving up the child.
- A full placement investigation must be completed (which evaluates whether
your home is suitable, whether you are emotionally mature and financially
stable, background checks, etc.).
- You will have to complete a course or counseling prior to finalizing the adoption.
As you can see, having a proficient and reliable legal firm on your side
is a must if you intend to navigate through the intimidating waters of
the adoption process. To retain the legal experience you need, contact
