Eatmon Law Firm, PC helps married couples and individuals with the following types of adoptions:

  • Private Adoptions.  The adoptive parents locate a child available for adoption without the assistance of an adoption agency.  This can be done with the consent of the biological parents or may involve a private termination of parental rights.
  • Stepparent Adoptions.  The spouse of a child’s parent seeks to become a legal parent of the child.  The stepparent and parent must be married for at least six (6) months prior to being eligible to initiate a stepparent adoption.
  • Relative Adoptions.  The adoptive parents are related to the child they desire to adopt.
  • Adult Adoptions.  Adult adoptions are often sought because the adoptee’s biological parent(s) would not consent to the adoption during the adoptee’s minority.
  • Please note that Eatmon Law Firm, PC does not assist with international adoptions.
