Build Your Family Through Third-Party Adoptions
A child may be adopted by a third party who is not a close relative or stepparent of a child. This comes up if a relative, who is not a grandparent, great-grandparent, aunt, uncle, great aunt, great uncle, or sibling, is caring for a child in his or her parents’ place and the parties agree that adoption is the best option for the child. It may also be appropriate when the child to be adopted is born to a friend or acquaintance who wants to exercise her option of adoption. The parents must surrender their parental rights for purposes of the adoption. There is only a four-day window in which the parents can revoke their surrender of parental rights. The adopting parents must get a home study and criminal background checks to ensure the adoption is in the best interest of the child. Third-party adoptions are a common way to build families that provide children with stability, support and love. Let us help you build your family through adoption today.
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.
