Newborn Private Placement
We facilitate adoptions where adoptive parents have found a birth mother on their own (which is not unusual), or when an agency within or outside of Florida needs a Florida Attorney. Even when adoptive parents have found a birth mother on their own, adoption is a complicated area of law that must be navigated by an attorney who practices in that area.
Step-Parent and Relative Adoptions
In Florida, step-parents and relatives within the 3rd degree (grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings) do not need home studies. We will assist in the formal adoption of stepchildren and relatives, obtaining consent from the natural parent(s) or initiating termination of rights in cases of abandonment. Unlike non-relative or non-stepparent adoption, stepparent and relative adoption are substantially less costly.
