Adoption

The Giampolo Law Group acknowledges that successful adoptions have three basic phases: finding a match, the legal process and emotional adjustments. All three phases are individually complicated and we, at GLG, will guide you through the entire adoption process, which may include any of the following:

  • Private licensed adoption agency finalizations
  • Public agency finalizations
  • Independent (or private) adoptions
  • Interstate adoptions, both independent and agency
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Opening adoption records
  • Embryo adoptions
  • Assistance in obtaining home study services
  • Single parent adoptions
  • Relative adoptions
  • Termination of parental rights

Whether it’s in the United States or around the world, bringing new families together is a rewarding part of Giampolo Law Group’s practice. We want our clients to focus on the enjoyment of growing their family without worrying about the complex, procedural hurdles of an adoption. GLG will effectively coordinate all parties, court and state agencies, as well as identify opportunities to expedite the process to save our clients both time and money. GLG possesses in-depth knowledge of the Hague Convention on Protection of Children as well as federal and state statutes on adoptions. Moreover, GLG is adept at dealing with complex jurisdictional differences and possesses the cultural sensitivity necessary to complete international adoptions.

While the process varies depending on the type of adoption, each state requires that adoptions comply with a number of legal and non-legal requirements prior to approval and finalization. Whether you are contemplating an open, domestic adoption, or a co-parent adoption of a spouse or partner's child, GLG will provide you the counsel required to navigate this complex path.
