Adoption is a legal process which allows the state to transfer guardianship
and care of a child to new parents. For a couple who wish to adopt a child
to start a family or add to an existing family a successful adoption is
an involved and complex but rewarding process. Many people decide to adopt
a child from a foreign country, but even an adoption within the couple
state of residence can result in some thorny legal snags. Whether you
have just decided to begin the process or are mid-way into an adoption
and have run into obstacles consult a Deer Park attorney experienced in
smoothing the way in public and private adoptions.

An adoption once completed is permanent. The child is now your own with
the assumption of all of the parental rights and obligations of parenthood
the same as if you were the birth parents. Using a public adoption agency
is an involved process which includes home inspections and extensive screening
of the prospective adoptive parents. Private adoption where you have already
located parents who wish to adopt out a child still entails an involved
process. The adoption of children in a foreign country requires the adoptive
parents to travel to another country to complete the adoption under that
country's laws and deal with immigration regulations in the United
States. To ensure the adoption will be recognized here you must also formalize
the adoption in this country. Difficulties can arise at anytime in the
adoption process no matter which method you elect to use. Having a skilled
adoption lawyer to help you navigate the regulations and ensure all legal
requirements are met can avoid troubles down the road.
Having experienced legal representation can ensure the final registration
of your adoption is properly completed. If you have questions concerning
