Types of Adoption
The goal of all adoptions is the same: to place a child in a family that can love and support him or her during childhood and beyond.
In all adoptions, the biological parents’ rights must be terminated so that a parent-child relationship can be established between the child and the adoptive parent(s). That means when an adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents become the child’s legal parents and have the same rights and responsibilities to the child as if the child was actually born to them.
We can assist you with any type of adoption, including:
- Step-parent adoption
- Relative adoption
- State adoptions
- Private adoptions
- International adoptions
- Adult adoptions
Each type of adoption has its own unique requirements and complexities. No matter what form of adoption you are interested in, our Franklin adoption attorneys can help you navigate the process from start to finish.
