There is nothing quite like bringing a family together, no matter its shape or size. Adoption can take many forms, whether it’s a step-parent adoption of a child or adoption of an adult person. There are several steps that must be taken to complete a successful adoption, including notification and consent to the biological parents. In a step-parent adoption, if we are unable to get consent from the biological parent, we have to prove that the other parent has abandoned the child. Typically the court will appoint a guardian ad litem to provide substitute consent. The adoption process can be tough to navigate on your own and it’s important that it’s done correctly to avoid future problems. Hightower Reff Law can help navigate this intricate legal process in order to help solidify the family bond you have already created.

If you are considering adoption for your child either with your new spouse or under other circumstances, Hightower Reff Law can offer comprehensive and considerate representation of your interests as the relinquishing parent. The decision to place your child for adoption is a significant one, and having all the information necessary to make the best choice for you and your child is key.
