The legal troubles with the adoption process can be very complex. Parents looking to add a family member through adoption must be sure to have the right legal representation so that the process runs smoothly and any issues are taken care of in a timely manner. Our attorneys are experienced in handling different types of adoption practices. Anderson & Associates, P.C. can guide you through the multifaceted adoption legal process and aid you in avoiding problems along the way.

Knowledgeable Legal Representation for Illinois Adoptions

Although there are many kinds of adoptions, all must go through the legal system in order for them to be valid. Illinois law has determined many rules and regulations on how to legally adopt a child. Our lawyers are skilled in the following adoption law areas:

  • Related Adoptions – Adoptions in which one or both guardians are related to the child. (i.e. stepparent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or cousin)
  • Agency Adoptions – Adoptions that are supervised by licensed Illinois adoption agencies.
  • Private Adoptions – Adoptions in which biological parents choose the adoptive parents and place the child in their care without the assistance of an adoption agency or social services.
  • Co-parent Adoptions – Adoptions in which both parents are not married but seek equal parenting rights. These are typical in nontraditional families.
  • Adult Adoptions – Adoptions in which an adult is legally adopted by another adult.

Some adoptions can involve contestation, but most are simple, uncontested adoptions without many problems. Our attorneys are skilled in representing parents who are adopting for the first time or those who must defend against an adoption reversal.
