Adoption

Adoptions come about through many circumstances, including:

  • Adoptions agreed to by birth parents and adoptive parents
  • Adoptions involving a parent or parents who do not willingly give up a child
  • Private adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Adoptions by grandparents or other family members

Whatever the specifics, an adoption is most often a very happy occasion. New family ties are formalized and new identities are confirmed. As a full-service family law attorney, Rita Silin in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, handles adoption along with variety of other legal services involving children, such as child custody modifications and guardianships.

Silin Law Firm PLLC Addresses The Unique Aspects Of Each Adoption

Every unique set of circumstances will determine how to proceed with an adoption case. A paternity action may be required before you can proceed with your plans for adoption of a son or daughter.

In a contested adoption, birth parents may disagree with the termination of their parental rights. They may agree to an open adoption only and want reassurance that they will be allowed continued contact with a child or children. Or they may agree to a closed adoption. In some cases, birth parents are deceased.
