When the law hits your home life, it makes a significant impact on your life. With adoption, the process results in an expanded family. At The Cowan Law Firm, our practice enjoys working with local families to grow their family.
There are far too many children in need of a home and the love, support, and care only a parent can provide. When a couple or individual has made the decision to adopt one or more of these infants/adolescents, they are committing to a process that is extensive and stressful, but ultimately, very rewarding. It is often extremely helpful and necessary to allow a legal professional to assist you and/or your family with the adoption process, even after the child has already been placed in your home.
The Cowan Law Firm has been providing pre-suit mediations, representation, and legal counseling for adoptive parents for the last 15 years. We very knowledgeable about the requirements potential parents must fulfill and will advise and assist them every step of the way. It is by no means a simple process, but with our legal expertise it is guaranteed to go much more smoothly and be less stressful for every person involved.
If a legal issue that threatens a parent’s rights to their adoptive child arises, our attorneys will defend their case in court. It is common for a child’s biological parents to have second thoughts once they have given their child up for adoption, but once contracts have been signed and the adoptive parents have taken the child home there is no turning back. It is not fair for adoptive parents to have to fight for a child that legally belongs to them and our lawyers will make sure they don’t have to.
