We are adoption attorneys: We represent step-parents, grandparents, foster parents, individuals, couples (married or unmarried) and any other person(s), who care for someone else’s child or wish to adopt a new born. We represent adoptive parents in the State of Indiana and from other states.
We are terminators: Although hard to admit, some parents are unfit and should not raise a child or children. As Adoption Attorneys, we can terminate the parental rights of unfit parents. Even if only one parent is unfit it is possible, through adoption, to terminate the unfit parent’s parental rights while maintaining the parental rights of the fit parent.
Other services: Families and individuals often have need for other legal services not related to adoption, such as: guardianships, paternity, wills, estates, power of attorney, and other legal matters including financial adoption programs. We assist our clients with these matters.
