Preparing for The Adoption Process

New York Adoption Attorneys Explain What to Expect

As a family that has been brought together by adoption, our adoption lawyers know that the adoption process may seem like an intimidating maze of legal procedures. Although the process may not be easy, it most certainly can be a rewarding and joyous experience. While the process can vary considerably depending on your current situation, your unique needs and goals, and your chosen adoption action, there are some general steps you can expect. If you are ready to learn more, schedule an appointment with our attorneys in Garden City, Roslyn, NY or surrounding areas.

General Steps in The Adoption Process Include:

  • Pre-certification requirements, including home study
  • Steps to search for or be matched with a child
