Adoption can be wonderful—but the process can be overwhelming. At Gans & Gans, we guide families through the intricate stages of family adoptions. We work to minimize any stress or frustration associated with the process.
While adoption is a very rewarding process for many, it can be very tense for other families. We have the experience and compassion to handle all family circumstances and lead your family through the process. We assist clients with the following:
- Termination of parental rights: The initial stages of every adoption begin with the termination of the biological parents' parental rights.
- Step-parent adoptions: Newly remarried couples often pursue step-parent adoptions in order to give the child full opportunity of health insurance and other rights of the step-parent.
- Family adoptions: Grandparent adoptions or other family adoptions may be necessary to protect a child from harm or keep the child out of foster care.
In addition, we offer advice and assistance to families in navigating the paperwork and other legal issues involved in other adoptions, such as private adoptions, agency adoptions, or international adoptions.
