In short, private adoption is a domestic adoption in which the prospective birth mother and hopeful adoptive parents work with a private adoption agency. Most of the time, “private adoption” is just another way of referring to U.S. domestic infant adoption.
The role of an adoption law attorney varies depending on the circumstance of the domestic adoption. You can adopt without the assistance of attorney; however, some chose to have the legal process including documents and court proceeds to be facilitate and lead by an experienced adoption lawyer. Our attorneys can also be retained to provide consultation and document review for parent(s) working through the legal aspects of domestic adoption on their own.
