Private Adoption Law
Adoption law is ever-changing, but something that never changes is the pleasure of watching an individual or couple build a family through adoption — and knowing that our legal efforts have helped clients achieve what biology could not.
KDDK family law attorneys are involved in all aspects of adoption. On occasion we represent either the couple who wishes to adopt, or the birthmother who is considering adoption for her baby.
We have experience in private (independent) adoptions which do not involve child placement agencies, but bring together prospective adoptive parents, a birthmother and her baby. In all cases, the best interest of the baby is kept at heart.
Private adoptions are court-supervised. The birthmother and adoptive parents are represented by separate legal counsel, and the process utilizes Indiana law to ensure an ethical and final adoption.
