Adoption

Our office provides adoption services to all types of families, and can assist with even the most complex situations.  We have handled adoptions subject to the strict requirements of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), interstate placements requiring compliance with the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), step-parent and second-parent adoptions, third-parent adoptions, contested adoptions, finalization of international and domestic agency adoptions and adoptions through the Department of Social and Health Services.  Our office represents and consults with prospective adoptive parents at every stage of the adoption process, and also represents birthparents who have placed or are considering placing a child for adoption.
 
We also represent individuals and couples who are expanding their families through assisted reproductive technologies (ARTS), including egg or sperm donation, surrogacy, and embryo adoption.

We understand firsthand the questions and uncertainties facing parents who build their families through adoption or ARTS.  Our goal is to provide our clients with a complete understanding of the process, and to minimize anxiety and surprises through frequent communication.  We will ensure that the outcome is legally secure, so you can concentrate on your family.
 
We value the formation of all types of families, and enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds. For additional information, see www.annestadopt.com.
