PRIVATE ADOPTION ATTORNEY LEHI UTAH
Larsen Law Firm
When it comes to private or independent adoption, prospective adoptive parents are advised by an adoption attorney, rather than work with an adoption agency.
Typically with an independent adoption, the prospective parents take an active role in identifying a birth mother, usually by networking, advertising, or by searching the Internet.
Another difference between independent and agency adoption is the method by which the birth parents consent to adoption. In an agency adoption, the birth parents relinquish their parental rights to an agency, the agency, in turn, consents to an adoption by specific adoptive parents. In independent adoption, the birth parents give their consent directly to the adoptive parents.
During the course of the adoption, Larsen Law Firm will handle the legal documents, negotiate payments to the birth mother, and represent you at the adoption court hearing.
Before a private adoption takes place, the adoptive parents must undergo a home study and a state and federal back ground check.
If you're considering private adoption call Larsen Law Firm for a free consultation and one of our experienced Lehi Adoption Attorneys will help you every step of the way.
