Cobb County Attorneys Handling Adoptions

The adoption of a child is supposed to be a joyous occasion for everyone involved. However, in too many cases, the legal issues can get in the way and complicate the otherwise happy occasion. When looking into an adoption in Cobb County, you should work with an experienced attorney who can handle these legal complications for you, allowing you to enjoy the moment.

At The Siemon Law Firm, we handle private adoptions, stepparent adoptions and foster adoptions. From our office in Marietta, we represent clients throughout Cobb County, Georgia. Although adoptions usually involve numerous complications, our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help you through the process as painlessly as possible.

Private Adoptions

A private adoption is when a parent or parents adopt a child, either on their own or through the help of an adoption agency. Once the adoption is complete, the child will obtain all the legal rights of a biological child. Whether or not you use an agency, you will still benefit from legal representation in the process to make sure your rights are protected and that you understand the legal ramifications involved.

Stepparent Adoptions

Stepparent adoptions occur when a stepparent develops a special bond with the child and wants to formalize the relationship legally through adoption proceedings. These adoptions can become more complicated, however, especially when the other parent is disputing the adoption. The parental rights of the biological parent need to be terminated before a stepparent adoption can proceed.

Our lawyers know how to handle these cases, and we can help protect your rights through the process.

Foster Adoptions

Many couples choose to find a child for adoption through foster care agencies. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience helping clients through this process in Cobb County and throughout Georgia.

We Have The Experience To Help You

For most parents adopting a child, especially for the first time, there are numerous questions:

  • How do I handle a home investigation?
  • What about terminating parental rights of the biological parents?
  • What about birth certificates and name changes?

Our lawyers have these answers. Talk with us today. Call 770-888-5120 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with one of our family law attorneys.
