Providing Experienced Advocacy In Adopting A Child

Some law firms that assist with adoptions concern themselves primarily with the paperwork, which can be extensive. The involvement of Brandon Family Law Center, LLC, goes beyond paperwork. We take on prospective adoptions as projects, and we get involved in just about every part of the adoption process

The most enjoyable part of our practice is facilitating adoptions of children into loving family environments. Our office has aided hundreds of parents in Florida and nationwide in clearing the way to adopt a child.

Based in the Tampa Bay area, Brandon Family Law Center, LLC, helps birth mothers find loving, caring families for their children. We perform extensive background checks and careful screening of all adoptive parents, taking steps to ensure a birth mother is comfortable with a family.
