Legal Assistance For Your Adoption
It’s always happy news when a family welcomes a new member — whether by marriage, the birth of a child, or through adoption. Indeed, adoption is an especially happy occasion since it is the culmination of both love and a lot of work.
Unfortunately, adoption can be complicated. The legal obstacles are there for a reason, though: it’s a serious commitment to permanently transfer the legal rights, obligations and custody of a child from a parent to another party. At Kenny & Lowry, we are committed to helping you finalize your adoption and grow your family.
Make Your Role As A Parent Official
Adoptions can start in a variety of places in North Carolina and beyond — many begin when interested potential parents contact an adoption agency. Alternatively, adoption can also mean transferring parental rights from one parent to another — for instance, from the child’s biological parents to his or her stepparent, grandparents, aunt, uncle or other relative.
Each adoption is different, and it is important to have a skilled attorney guiding you through the process. In some circumstances, both biological parents are in agreement and willing to sign consents for the adoption to take place. In other circumstances, a biological parent may be unknown, absent, or not in agreement with the adoption and their parental rights must be terminated in order to proceed. Whatever your circumstances may be, at Kenny & Lowry we are ready to navigate the adoption process with you.
