One of the most rewarding things family law attorneys get the opportunity to do is to help families come together through adoption. There are many different types of adoption, but all of them create an official, legal parent-child relationship.
Sometimes the adoption simply formalizes a relationship that has existed for a while, such as between a stepparent and stepchild or foster parent and foster child. Other times the adoption is the start of a relationship, such as when intended parents formally adopt a newborn infant. Whatever the circumstances, attorney Sean Blume and Blume Law Group will help ensure that the legal components of the adoption are handled appropriately, completely, and with sensitivity to all involved.
Depending on your situation, adoption may be relatively straightforward and streamlined, or time-consuming and complex. Types of adoption available to Michigan families include:
Because adoption creates new legal relationships and rights and severs others, it is essential to have experienced legal guidance to ensure that all necessary documents are properly completed and necessary procedures are followed for the protection of all parties.
Adoption is a lifetime commitment that can change the lives of adoptive parents and children for the better in ways they may have never imagined. At Blume Law Group, we are committed to helping our clients expand their families through whatever type of adoption is right for them.
