Adoption

Adoption Attorneys in Indiana

Adoption is a very highly rewarding experience in a parent's life.  The process can be tedious and confounding at times, but the end result of offering a new life and opportunity for a child is worth the time and effort it takes.  

There are generally three ways adoptions are completed:

  • Agency Adoptions
  • Private Adoptions 
  • International Adoptions

Another way to think of these three categories is to think of where the child is born or residing before the adoption, versus where the parents live, i.e, typically corresponding to the above three categories:

  • In state Adoptions
  • Interstate Adoptions
  • International Adoptions

International adoptions may be highly variable in how they are completed when compared with in-state and interstate adoptions, because each nation has its own set of laws and regulations pertaining to the adoption of children.  Thus, they are more complex.  The Thompson Law Office devotes special time and work into resolving adoption issues for parents wishing to adopt a child born on foreign soil.

There are also intra-family adoptions, typically step-parent adoptions if the circumstances warrant.  The Thompson Law Office is adept at handling each type of adoption depending on your needs.  We have particular experience handling interstate adoptions, working with the ICPC (Interstate Compact on the Placement of Chidlren), and handling step-parent, guardianship or foster parent adoptions, often involving the services of DCS or other state agencies.

As attorneys with extensive paternity experience, we are highly skilled at working with parents on issues of consent to adoption, and ancillary issues that arise in the course of the adotpion process.  

We take great pleasure in helping families given children the best opportunities they can by offering the full range of adoption legal services to our clients.

If you are considering adotpion and are an Indiana resident or adopting a child living in Indiana at present, please contact the Thompson Law Office today to schedule a consultation concerning your rights and options.
