Adoption is a major decision for both parents and children. Adding another piece to your family is a serious step for everyone involved. But when the dust settles, there’s nothing as wonderful as the look of a happy, healthy, completed family.
At Klok Family Law, adoption is a chief area of care and attentiveness. We put every ounce of our work into making sure you feel comfortable and well arranged from beginning till end. Our services are structured to make sure your adoption goes as smoothly as possible.
Why do I need an Adoption Lawyer?
While your intentions to adopt are pure and straightforward, the process can be anything but.
If you’re prepping your family and for a new member, it’s important to have knowledgeable legal counsel to take care of the finer details. Depending on where you’re adopting from, laws and regulations are likely to vary. Klok Family Law is here to help – we concentrate on several forms of adoption. Whether it’s an open, domesticating international, or stepchild adoption, we’re equipped to bring your family together as quickly and painlessly as possible.
If you’re at the beginning steps of your adoption plan, Klok Law is a great place to start. We provide a variety of services including:
- Agency selection. If you would like to adopt through a public or private agency, Klok family law can help point you in the right direction. We understand the time and labor involved in selecting a trustworthy go-between, and can help you shed some of the legwork.
- State Laws. Every state is different – if you’re involved in an inter-state adoption, you’ll want to have everything in line. Klok Family Law can help you translate the legal terms and get you outfitted with a blueprint for the adoption.
- Legal representation. Along any point of the process, Klok Family Law can assist you in the courtroom. Our practice is focused on bringing families together, and we’re devoted to giving you the best legal service to do just that.
The Adoption Petition
In most cases, the decision to adopt becomes a reality when you file a petition. The adoption petition is an official document that states your intent to adopt, as well information such as your financial means, qualifications and desired name.
While the petition may sound straightforward, it’s easy to get bogged down in the smaller print. The team at Klok Family Law is trained to help you through the petition from start to finish. Depending on the state you live in and the state you’re adopting from, the petition could contain addendums or altered contracts.
Let the legal team at Klok Family Law take care of the specifics so you can focus on what’s most important: your family. Klok Family Law welcomes calls, e-mails and in-person visits to discuss the terms of your petition. Whether you’ve only just started to consider adoption or you’re midway through the process, Klok Family Law is here to help.
