Are you Considering Starting or Expanding Your Family Through Adoption?

If so, this is an important time in your life. When people wish to start or expand their family but are unable to have children on their own, adoption can be a great option. Adoption is the legal process a person or a couple goes through to obtain all rights and responsibilities in caring for a child. While adoption may seem simple, a skilled Ardmore adoption attorney can help you make the right decisions for your family.

Different Types of Adoption

There are many types of adoption and different ways of adopting a child. Whether you choose a closed adoption where you and the birth parent(s) remain confidential or an open adoption where you are in contact with the birth parent(s) will be up to all parties involved. Adoptive parents also have the option of adopting children inside the United States or Internationally. Adopting a child of a different ethnicity is also very common. Many states allow same-sex couples to adopt as well.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
