Uncommon Legal Advocacy Focusing On Your Best Interests

Understanding Adoption

An adoption is usually a happy occasion. New family ties are formalized and new identities are confirmed. 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

Adoptive parents often hope to contain legal costs and get adoptions finalized in a timely manner. They want reassurance that birth parents’ rights have been terminated and an adoption will not be reversible. At Silin Law Firm PLLC, I thoroughly guide adoptive families to secure completion of adoption. I am Rita Silin. As a full-service family law attorney, I handle 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.

I represent adoptive parents, same-sex parents or birth parents. I will answer your questions and help with your adoption matter.
