Adoption

The Adoption Process

Adopting a child can be a wonderful thing. However, the adoption process is usually long and complicated, with a huge amount of paperwork that needs to be done. If you are adopting a child, having the help of an experienced lawyer can make things much smoother.

I have assisted military families and other people with different types of adoptions, including those involving stepparents. I understand the laws that relate to adoption, and I am experienced with the paperwork and procedures that need to be done. Contact me for a free consultation about your adoption plans.

Can I Be Reimbursed for the Cost of Adoption?

The cost of an adoption can be very high. However, if you are a service member, you should know that the military will usually pay for your adoption expenses, including lawyers’ fees. Some other employers will reimburse you for adoption costs, as well. I can explain how this works and help you get the reimbursement you are entitled to.
