We are dedicated to successfully guiding you through the adoption process in a streamlined and cost-effective manner. It is very important to seek legal advice early in the process to minimize avoidable problems and obstacles which will increase adoption costs and prolong the adoption process.
Effective Adoption Lawyers: Too Much Is on the Line
We handle a full range of adoption situations, including:
- Private agency adoptions
- State agency adoptions
- Interstate adoptions
- Contested adoptions
- Stepparent adoptions
- Grandparent adoptions
- Relative adoptions
- Termination of parental rights
- Involuntary termination of parental rights
- Name changes
Many of the adoptions our lawyers handle are by grandparents, stepparents or other relatives who wish to adopt a child already living with them. In these cases the biological parent is either absent from the child's life or unable to care for the child. In addition to giving the child the security of a permanent parent-child relationship, adoption gives the adoptive parent all the same legal rights as a biological parent. As part of the adoption process, the rights of the biological parent or parents must be terminated. A full and complete termination is essential to ensure that the biological parent does not try to undo the adoption later. If the biological parent does not wish to voluntarily terminate his or her rights, there are a number of grounds that Massachusetts courts will consider when deciding whether those rights should be terminated involuntarily.
