Adoptions are a significant moment in any person’s life. From step-parent adoptions to adult adoptions, we help our clients navigate the complicated process of filing for the adoption, and if necessary, litigating a contested adoption. We handle a wide range of child adoptions, including:

  • Domestic adoptions
  • Infant adoptions
  • Step-parent adoptions
  • Grandparent adoptions
  • Agency adoptions
  • Private adoptions
  • Re-adoption of international children

In Indiana, a step-parent may petition to adopt the child of his/her spouse under certain circumstances:

  • Where both biological parents consent and where there is not consent by both biological parents
  • Where a parent has failed to pay child support
  • Where a parent has failed to have significant contact with the child for the requisite period

Contested Adoptions

In many cases, an adoption process requires a birth parent to agree to terminate his or her parental rights. We represent adoptive parents dealing with contested adoptions as well as adoptions involving missing birth parents. Our attorneys will:

  • Provide the required notice when a parent cannot be located
  • Effectively present a case to the trial court
  • Take a case to the court of appeals when adoption is contested

Our adoption attorneys will discuss the particulars of your situation and advise on your adoption case. We will work to ensure that the adoption process ends in a memorable day for you and your family.
