Can prospective adopters seek legal compensation for a default adoption?

Yes. In disputed termination of parental rights cases, in which the biological parent(s) decides to keep the child, the prospective adoptive parent(s) may be eligible for payment of adoption attorney fees through the adoption subsidy program, a refund of all expenses paid to the birth mother during the pregnancy, and compensation for emotional pain and duress. If you have been involved in an adoption procedure that did not end successfully, or you feel your adoptive rights have been violated, contact a qualified adoption attorney who can advise you of your legal options of recourse.
