Fort Lauderdale Adoption Attorney

I love handling adoptions! Helping a child find a forever family gives me great joy. As the adoptive mother of three wonderful kids myself, I know the sense of well-being it brings to both the children and the rest of the family.

The adoption process is not always the easiest path to navigate. The questions seem nearly endless: Do I need a home study? How do I get one? Should I adopt an infant or an older child? Can I handle a child with special needs? Can I adopt a child of a different race? What if the child I adopt wants to find their birth parent(s) later? What if my ex won’t surrender their parental rights so that my spouse can adopt my child? If my new spouse adopts my child, does my child still have rights regarding my ex?

I have been there and I understand.

As a Fort Lauderdale Adoption Attorney, I will handle the legal requirements so that you can spend your time bonding with and enjoying your family. Whether you are a step-parent who wants to adopt your step-child, you have another relative you wish to adopt, or if you have been fostering a child and you now want to be their forever family, I will work with you so that you will understand the process and matters proceed as smoothly as possible.

Many people build their families through adoption. Some people have difficulty getting pregnant, possibly even after already having one or more successful pregnancies. Same sex couples may want to have children. A new spouse may want to adopt a step-child. Or maybe you just want to give some deserving child (or children!) a permanent home. All of these – and many, many more – are valid reasons to consider adoption.

Of course, not everyone wants to adopt. If you are single, have fertility issues, or are in a same-sex relationship but would still like a biological tie to your future child(ren), we can assist you in determining if gestational surrogacy is an option you would like to pursue.

Often when people consider starting their family through adoption or surrogacy, they are not sure where to begin. If you have not already identified a child who you want to adopt, you may wonder what the best route is for you. Ultimately, only you can make that decision. But, I am here to present options to you and give you some pros and cons of each. Contact our Fort Lauderdale Adoption Law Firm to arrange a time to discuss some of the options below.
