Adoption

Adoption

Plant Street Law assists those seeking to formalize a family relationship through adoption. We work carefully to ensure that the entire process is completed with thoroughness and integrity and act decisively to deliver solutions that best meet our clients' needs. We can act as intermediary in a private adoption to ensure that the legal aspects of the adoption process are handled with great care and consideration.

If you are a step-parent who has created a strong and loving bond with your step-child, we can assist as you build your family through the adoption process.  If you are a relative or grand-parent of a child, we can provide legal representation to assist you in assuming full responsibility of the child.

Families who have completed an international adoption often need to finalize paperwork through a process referred to as “re-adoption” or domestication in which Florida courts recognize a foreign order of adoption.  In some cases this procedure is required to complete immigration paperwork, while in other cases it is beneficial in obtaining important documents such as a birth certificate and passport. We understand the arduous and often frustrating process of international adoption and will work to ensure that this final stage goes as smoothly as possible.
