Adoption Attorney In St. Louis
The St. Louis family law attorneys at Pedano, O’Shea, McGavic &
Hogenmiller, LLC are experienced in handling adoption and guardianship
cases. The adoption process is complex and there are a lot of procedural
requirements that must be met before an adoption can be finalized. There
are two categories of adoptions: adoptions by relatives and adoptions
by non-relatives. Adoptions by relatives are often by a step-parent, grandparent,
aunt or uncle, or other family member. In comparison, adoptions by non-relatives
typically involve a public or private agency or some other third independent
party. Once the adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents will have
all of the rights and responsibilities any biological parent would.
If you are interested in adopting, we invite you to
contact our firm to discuss which adoption avenue is best suited for you.
