Adopting a child is a wonderful experience but the applicable laws that govern the legal procedure behind the adoption can be complex and stressful. Several legal procedures need to take place in order to secure your rights as the adopting parent.
In a private adoption the biological parent’s legal rights to the child need to be terminated before the adopting parents can take control and possession of the child. Furthermore, the adopting parents must also have a certified and trained professional file a pre and post placement home study informing the court as to whether the adopting parents should be allowed to adopt the child and criminal background checks must be completed for the adopting parents as well.
You should always hire an Attorney to assist you with a private adoption to make sure all of the required legal procedures have been properly administered so that the adoption can take place in a timely manner.
