Adoption is an exciting time for expectant parents. However, the legal stipulations can turn a heartwarming occasion into a headache of contracts and signatures. At Murfreesboro Family Law our adoption attorneys will guide you through what we hope to be a seamless adoption process.
There are many factors to take into consideration when going through the legal process of adoption. The steps you take for adoption will hinge on the form of adoption you are undergoing. Here are a few different types of adoption:
- Domestic Adoption: a common type of adoption through a licensed Tennessee agency
- Open Adoption: adoption in which the biological parents of the child are still allowed to remain in contact with their son or daughter
- Closed Adoption: all adoption records are sealed and all communication between biological parents and children ceases
- Stepparent Adoption: a common type of adoption where in order to adopt, stepparents must obtain permission from the other biological parent
