Building Families Through Adoption
Each adoption comes about through a unique set of circumstances. Adoption can be a lengthy process, and sound legal counsel is essential. Our family law attorneys have the skills and knowledge to advise clients through each procedural step, from consent to filings and finalization hearings.
At Jeffers, Danielson, Sonn & Aylward, P.S., we have extensive experience advising clients throughout all types of adoption cases in the state of Washington. Our team of attorneys has the skills and focus necessary to drive your adoption case forward.
Types Of Adoptions That We Handle
Our family law attorneys guide clients through adoptions involving a wide range of scenarios, including the following:
- Stepparent adoptions
- Second parent adoptions
- Foster parent adoptions
- Private adoptions
- Grandparent adoptions and other adoptions by close relatives
- Adoptions of adults
For all types of adoptions, our lawyers have the necessary experience to handle cases from start to finish. As needed, we guide clients through legal processes, such as home studies, termination of parental rights of biological parents, fulfillment of any requirements of the court such as counseling, and the adoption in the U.S. of children adopted abroad.
We Are Ready To Get Your Family On The Path To Adoption
We love adoptions! Much of our work involves conflict, but adoptions are often the one exception when there is excitement and anticipation instead. When obstacles arise, such as when a long-absent biological parent suddenly objects to an adoption, we are ready to address these issues for the sake of our clients and their prospective adoptee children.
It is our privilege to help our clients navigate the many legal aspects of adoption in the most expedient, family-friendly ways available to them. To schedule a consultation regarding any aspect of adoption, reach out via email or call 509-662-3685. We also advise biological parents who desire open adoption agreements or who have questions related to any aspect of parentage, paternity or adoption.
