Adoptions are one of the most positive types of family law matters. Helping a loving family grow is always a pleasure. We are proud to use our decades of experience to help people as they navigate the complex processes that stand between them and the child they want to make part of their family.
More and more families today consist of a married couple with children where only one of the parents is biologically the children's parent. Over time, the bonds that such families have can grow to the point where it is natural to seek legal acknowledgement for the role a stepparent now plays in the child's life. Helping stepfathers and stepmothers secure their rights as parents under the law can provide real comfort to families who may otherwise be left in a legal limbo if a difficult situation should arise. We can help you secure a legal status for your family that reflects the reality of your relationships.
We offer same-sex couples the effective guidance and counsel they need to be able to add a child to the love they share. Our focus is on helping all couples build the strong families they deserve.
