Welcoming a new member into your family via adoption can be an exciting and joyous time for families. However, the process can be challenging, confusing, and full of demands.
An adoption is a legal arrangement where parental rights are transferred from the birth parents to the adoptive parents. Once complete, the adoptive parents become legally responsible for the child and obtain all legal parental rights – as though the child were biologically born to them. It is a means of providing a safe and stable home for a child who is in need of safety and stability.
Whether you are trying to adopt a newborn baby through a private agency, or are interested in adopting an older child who is currently under the supervision of another person, an Orange County family law attorney can provide you with representation.
