Choosing Your Adoption Path: Legal Support for Diverse Adoption Types

As exciting as adoption can be, it is also a quite complicated process, and it can require many steps. Having a knowledgeable lawyer by your side to help advise you about the details of adoption can be extremely helpful for avoiding unnecessary delays in your adoption journey. There are different types of adoption processes, and our skilled attorneys can help assist you with your unique situation.

There are several kinds of adoptions:

  • Domestic Adoptions: Domestic adoption is one of the most common methods families use to adopt from a licensed agency in Tennessee.
  • Open Adoptions: Sometimes families may choose to have an open adoption. This allows the biological parents to maintain contact with the child after the adoption process is complete.
  • Closed Adoptions: In the case of closed adoptions, all records are sealed, and the biological parents are not allowed to contact the adoptive family. There is a legal petition and process that must be complete if either party ever wants to re-establish contact.
  • Stepparent Adoptions: Stepparent adoptions are very common and typically face the challenge of getting the consent of the other biological parent.
