Are You Growing Your Family?

Speak with a domestic adoption attorney that serves Garden City and Roslyn, NY

The adoption process is complex, but working with a domestic adoption attorney can make adding a family member easier. Greenberg & Greenberg assists with domestic adoptions in Garden City, Roslyn, NY and surrounding areas. This type of private adoption, where a birth parent places a child directly with adoptive parents, occurs without an adoption agency's involvement. However, it does still require a home study, filing a petition and a rigorous legal process once the adoption process has begun.

Contact a domestic adoption attorney today if you'd like to pursue this path.

Learn more about domestic adoption

For domestic adoptions, you must submit information to the court for approval.

This includes:

  • The marital and family status of the adoptive parents
  • The physical and mental health of the adoptive parents
  • The status of any previous applications for a certification
  • Property owned by, and the income of, the adoptive parents
  • Results of a criminal background check and child abuse clearance

The court will also insist on a home study done by a social worker to determine if you can meet the child's needs. Reach out to us now if you have any questions about domestic adoption.
