Ohio Adoption Lawyers

The adoption of a child or children is sometimes in the best alternative of a child.  The requirements for adoption are significant and necessary to protect the child or children, their natural parents, and the interests of our community so that the future of the child will be carefully considered.

Types of Adoption

There are several types of adoption, each of which has its own specific requirements and formalities.  Whether the adoption is a private adoption, a stepparent adoption, an agency adoption, or a foreign adoption, it is essential to have an attorney who is fully aware of these requirements and formalities.  Whenever the adoption is of a child or children rather than of an adult, a home study will be required.  It is often also necessary to retain the services of an adoption assessor.  Proper notice to necessary parties is also required.

If you are involved in seeking to adopt, you will, of course, feel much more secure and safe if you have an attorney who is fully aware of the specific requirements and formalities of the adoption process.

In some cases, there may be opposition to an adoption.   If the adoption is not in the best interest of the child or children or if proper notice of the proceedings was not given, the adoption can be denied.  If you are in a situation in which an adoption is sought and you do not believe that the best interest of the child or children is being served by the proposed adoption, you can contest the adoption.  Similarly, if proper notice of the adoption proceedings was not made, you may also successfully stop the adoption.

In any case where an adoption will affect you or children that are dear to you, you will need an Ohio Adoption Attorney who is well prepared to fully represent your interests and the interests of the child or children involved. Our Adoption Attorneys are fully aware of all of the requirements and formalities either to successfully pursue an adoption matter for you or to oppose an adoption when that is ill advised or not necessary.
