Melbourne Child Adoptions Lawyer
Expanding your family through adoption can be one of the most joyful times in your life, but it can also be an extremely complex legal proceeding. The assistance of a qualified Melbourne child adoptions attorney can help to ensure that the entire process goes smoothly and that your interests are protected to the fullest possible extent.
At the law office of Shawn Reid, Attorney at Law, we provide comprehensive representation to clients throughout Orange County and Brevard County in all aspects of adoption. The majority of our adoption practice is focused on stepparent adoptions. We also represent Florida clients in select agency and private placement infant adoptions.
Helping Parents and Stepparents Through A Complex Process
A stepparent may want to adopt his or her stepchildren for many reasons. Some want to solidify the new family unit, while others may have health insurance or estate planning reasons for establishing a formal relationship.
We will assist you with all aspects of the adoption process, including taking the necessary steps to locate the other biological parent and terminating his or her parental rights. In some cases, the other biological parent has abandoned the relationship and gives up his or her parental rights willingly. If the termination is disputed, however, we are prepared to argue your case before the court.
