What do they do?
As your adoption journey progresses, your adoption attorney will assist you with any legal matters that are necessary for the adoption to take place. They focus on matters such as terminating parental rights and tracking down parties who need to sign legal documents — like your child’s birth father. Additionally, after your baby is born, they will assist the adoptive parents by finalizing the adoption, and obtain a copy of the Amended Birth Certificate. While you technically do not need to work with an adoption agency to place your baby for adoption, an adoption attorney is required for the adoption to be legal.
