What are the Different Types of Adoption?

Adoption is a multifaceted journey, offering several avenues for creating or expanding your family. Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of various adoption types, ensuring that you receive tailored advice to suit your unique situation best.

  • Domestic Adoption: This adoption involves adopting a child within your country. Domestic adoptions can be facilitated through adoption agencies, legal professionals, or even direct arrangements with birth parents. Our Jackson adoption lawyers will guide you through the legalities, paperwork, and procedures.
  • International Adoption: International adoption refers to adopting a child from a foreign country. This process often encompasses international treaties, immigration requirements, and cultural sensitivities. Our extensive experience enables us to navigate the complexities associated with international adoption, ensuring a smooth and informed journey.
  • Stepchild Adoption: Stepchild adoption occurs when a stepparent seeks to legally adopt their spouse's child. This type of adoption necessitates the consent of both biological parents and may involve the termination of the noncustodial parent's rights. Our team will expertly manage the legalities of stepchild adoption to safeguard your family's interests.
  • Relative Adoption: Kinship adoption, or relative adoption, involves adopting a child within your extended family, such as a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or sibling. Relative adoptions provide a sense of continuity and comfort for the child. Count on us to guide you through the legal aspects of relative adoption.
