Adoption is one of the most wonderful activities an attorney can become involved with. Imagine, assisting people in creating a forever home for a child without a family. Giving new hope and new opportunities to all involved. Chapter 8 of the Arizona Revised Statutes establishes the basis upon which a person may be adopted by another. Be it an adult or couple adopting a child or children, or perhaps dealing with a surrogate. The laws must be properly followed to ensure that things go smoothly. In some circumstances, the law has even provided a basis for your attorneys’ fees and costs to be paid by the Arizona Department of Economic Security.
I am happy to meet with people seeing to adopt. Planning for such an event in advance helps keep things running smoothly. For this reason, be it a foster seeking to adopt a child in their charge or a private adoption, I ask that potential clients contact me immediately upon deciding to seek adoption. By doing so I am able to work with and assist all involved in the process and ensure that all the required documents and authorizations are obtained to avoid any delay. By doing so, we can make certain that when your day comes with the judge your new “Forever Family” will be legally created and nothing will be left to do but celebrate.
