Cordele Adoption Lawyers

Warner Robins Child Adoption Attorneys

Adoption is a momentous event for your family. But before you can make it happen, there are a number of things you will have to take care of and the process can be quite difficult. An experienced lawyer can help you simplify the process and make sure you do what is best for your family.

At the law offices of Rainwater, Gibbs & Wright LLP, our Cordele adoption attorneys have been protecting the rights of southern Georgia families since 1974. Over the past 35 years, we have helped families with a wide range of issues encountered during the adoption process, and we know how to help you find real solutions.

Providing Stability for Your Family During the Adoption Process

There are a number of different types of adoptions out there. Whether you are interested in expanding your family through an agency adoption or cementing your current family unit through a stepparent adoption, there are a number of things you have to consider. We are well versed in all types of adoptions, and we can help you address all possible concerns:

  • Agency adoptions: You may have to work with the Department of Family and Child Services to make sure both biological parents terminate their parental rights. If you are looking for a willing couple to adopt your child, we may be able to help with that as well.
  • Single parents: If you are a single parent looking to adopt, you face a lot of additional scrutiny. You are required to have a lawyer through the process, so make sure you have one who has handled these types of cases before.
  • Stepparent adoptions: It is very common for biological parents to resist giving up their parental rights in the case of stepparent adoption. We can help you resolve any potential dispute and do what is best for the children involved.

In some cases, you may be able to pursue an adoption without the consent of one or more of the biological parents. If a biological parent has not seen their child for over a year or provided proper support for their child for over a year, they may have their rights terminated.
