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 Attleboro 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.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Adoption Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
