A hundred years from now, no one will remember the size of your bank account, the car you drove or the square footage of your house. The world might differ greatly however, based on your impact in the life of a small child. — Ridgely Goldsborough
Guiding Ohio Clients Through the Entire Adoption Process
Adopting a child can be an extremely rewarding, yet emotional time for everyone involved. Families often experience several highs and lows while eagerly waiting for the adoption to be finalized. Our Columbus family lawyers have extensive experience handling contested and uncontested adoptions. We offer a comprehensive approach focused on guiding clients through the adoption process for any type of adoption, such as:
- Stepparent adoptions — This type of adoption is designed to provide stepparents with legal custody of their stepchildren. If the stepchild’s biological parent is alive, he or she would need to terminate their parental rights before the adoption process could move forward. Our law firm has a strong background handling contested and uncontested stepparent adoptions based on the children’s best interests.
- Grandparent adoptions — At the Lawrence Law Office, we have a strong background helping grandparents legally adopt their grandchildren. This type of adoption can be particularly challenging if the child’s biological parent does not want to give up his or her parental rights. We offer a compassionate approach to protect the children’s best interests, if the biological mother or father is unfit to parent based on alcohol use, drug addiction or other factors.
- Agency adoptions — Our law firm has extensive experience handling open and closed agency adoptions. We are well connected to adoption agencies throughout the United States and abroad. Our legal team is committing to helping adoptive parents or birth moms navigate through the legal process in the child’s best interest.
