Though adoptions can be very expensive, some adoptions - typically either in-family or step-parent - can be much more economical than many expect. Both of those services can be completed for a flat fee by The Lilly Law Firm.
Sometimes when one parent isn't involved in a child's life, a step-parent fills that role. Often that step-parent may want to adopt the child. This allows the step-parent to have the full rights of a parent for all purposes (including medical emergencies, involvement in schools, and every other matter); allows the child to change their name, if desired, to the name of their mother and father; and prevents the non-involved biological parent from attempting to force their way into the child's life down the road. If you're considering a step-parent adoption, call The Lilly Law Firm to arrange a consultation today at (678) 807-9150.
There are many reasons that one member of a family may need to adopt the child of another family member - most often a grandparent adopting a grandchild or an aunt or uncle adopting a niece or nephew. Sometimes the objectives sought can be fully achieved through other means such as guardianships and conservatorships, but other times a complete adoption is needed. To determine which solution best suits your particular situation, you will need to discuss the specifics of your case with an attorney. If you need assistance adopting a grandson, granddaughter, niece, or nephew, call The Lilly Law Firm to arrange a consultation today at (678) 807-9150.
