Private, Stepparent And Grandparent Adoptions Through Wyomissing Lawyers Who Care
Many issues can accompany the adoption process, adding bumps in the road and causing emotional frustration for your family. In addition to the adoption process, there may be termination concerns with regard to a biological parent or parents. If this termination is involuntary, petitions have to be filed, and there must be a 30-day waiting period to allow for an appeal. Either voluntary or involuntary termination requires a hearing process, although only one if all parties are in agreement.
With more than 50 years of combined experience, our attorneys, Dawn Palange, Ann Endres and Lauren Marks, are prepared to address even the most complex adoption and parental rights concerns. We will file petitions for the involuntary termination of rights as well as for the adoption and advocate for you at all necessary hearings. We also will help change birth certificates and other documents once the adoption is final.
