Adoption Lawyer Serving the Augusta, Georgia Area
Martinez Family Law Attorney
While considered by many family law attorneys and judges to be the most pleasant and rewarding of all the cases they handle, adoptions can also be very complicated. Part of the complication arises because it seems no two adoptions are exactly alike. Therefore, the adoption attorney needs to treat every adoption with special care and pay attention to every detail, so once the adoption is granted, there will be no complications in the future.
At Stephen H. Hagler LLC in Martinez, Georgia, we work with you to ensure that any future problems are avoided. Contact our law office to speak with a competent family law lawyer. Children are important, and we will protect their rights and your interests.
Efficiently handling adoptions in Georgia
There are several types of adoptions, including:
- Step-parent adoptions
- Adoptions by siblings
- Grandparent adoptions
- Adoptions by aunts and uncles
- Third party adoptions
Third party adoptions are generally the most complicated and require a skilled lawyer to explain the process and keep you informed. At our law office, we will be open and honest with you while answering all of your questions.
Securing your rights in adoptions in the Augusta area
One of the main concerns in all of adoptions is making sure that the biological parent or parents have either surrendered their rights to the minor child or have had their rights terminated by a court of competent jurisdiction. It is only then that the child can be adopted by the adoptive parent or parents. Of course, in a step-parent adoption, only one parent is surrendering their rights or having their rights terminated by the court.
Stephen H. Hagler has handled many adoptions over the years and would be honored to help you with yours.
