Adoption — A Special Way To Build A Family

Perhaps the most positive and rewarding aspect of our family law practice is guiding clients through adoption. Judges and lawyers alike take great satisfaction in helping loving people expand their families through adoption. While our law office does not locate children for clients, we are proud to represent individuals through all stages of the process. Email or call our Fresno, California, office to discuss your unique situation.

There are numerous reasons why people seek to adopt a child. Our office is prepared to help clients in a broad array of situations. While we do not represent clients through international adoption, we can help in:

  • Stepparent adoption
  • Relative adoption
  • Independent adoption

The adoption process can be frightening: We can help. It is our goal to guide you through the adoption process as efficiently and proactively as possible.

Termination Of Parental Rights

Prior to proceeding with the adoption, the rights of the birth mother and birth father must be terminated. In some situations, multiple potential fathers are named. The state requires the termination of rights of all known and unknown fathers. Our staff of professionals will take the steps necessary to track down the parents and get the appropriate approvals. It is not uncommon for a birth parent to consent to the adoption at the earliest stage. No matter which path your adoption process follows, our firm is ready to help.
