Find a Nashville Independent Adoption Attorney in your area

Are you considering an Independent Adoption?

Do you want to adopt a child without going through an adoption agency? Consult with a Nashville 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. Not every state permits such adoptions, but a Nashville attorney can advise you on the applicable law in your case and he or she will work with you and the birth parents to arrange communication, prepare legal papers, negotiate payments to the birth mother, and assist you throughout the adoption process.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

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.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Independent 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.
