Are you considering an Independent Adoption?

Do you want to adopt a child without going through an adoption agency? Consult with a Franklin attorney experienced in arranging independent adoptions. Your attorney can work with you and the birth parents to ensure an agreeable arrangement for all.

Independent Adoptions Do Not Use Adoption Agencies

An independent adoption is also referred to as a private adoption.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.
