Build Your Family Through Relative Adoptions

Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a person’s life. Opening your home to a child who needs one is a big change and can involve a lot of paperwork. At The Law Office of Ashley McCartney, LLC, we make the adoption path as smooth as possible for you so that you and your new family member can begin your new lives together.

A person or couple who is a grandparent, great-grandparent, aunt, uncle, great aunt, great uncle, or sibling to the child may adopt that child when both parents surrender their parental rights for purposes of adoption. There are many instances where a relative may be caring for a child in the parents’ place due to the parents’ hardship or otherwise and the parties agree that adoption is the best option for the child and the family. The Georgia Adoption Code streamlines the process to promote the best interests of the child.

Providing You Individualized Attention

In Georgia, different forms of adoption have different requirements. Because of this, our lawyer is very specific about what you need to know as you go through the adoption process and what rules you must comply with.

We communicate clearly and often with you, so you understand what is going on every step of the way. We work with you to fulfill the requirements for your adoption, so we can get a hearing scheduled as quickly as possible to finalize your adoption and help you begin your new family relationship.
