Helping You Expand Your Family
Adding a new member to your family should be a joyous occasion. The legal aspect of traditional adoptions and intrafamily adoptions (i.e., stepparent adoptions, grandparent adoptions) can complicate the situation. To preserve your enjoyment of adoption, you need the assistance of a dedicated and knowledgeable family law attorney.

Contact our Baton Rouge adoption lawyer to schedule an initial consultation to learn how we can help you.
Adoptions Take Many Forms
Intrafamily adoption is common. In this type of adoption, one parent remarries. In undertaking stepparent adoptions, we either get the consent of the biological parents or terminate parental rights, which is a difficult process. We also handle many grandparent adoptions for which the consent of the parents is needed.
The biological father whose paternity can be established through DNA testing must consent to an adoption.
There are many things that happen in connection with child adoption that are quite wonderful, and lives are changed.
