Serving Families from All Walks of Life
If you are single, married, in a same-sex relationship, or in an opposite-sex relationship, we can help you navigate the adoption process. Likewise, we work with those who are adopting through the foster care system. We have extensive experience with DCP&P and we are even on their roster of adoption attorneys.
What Is the Process for a Stepparent Adoption?
Another large part of our adoption practice is stepparent adoption. There are many nuances to stepparent adoptions, including obtaining the consent of the birth father and obtaining an order of custody pending adoption. Again, our skilled Chester adoption attorneys can guide you through the process.
The Home Study
Most adoptions require a home study. A home study is conducted by an approved agency and entails a visit to your home both before and after the child is placed with you. Because these home studies can be emotionally difficult, we will walk you through the process to put your mind at ease. A background check may also be required.
