Adoption Should Be Simple, But It Often Isn't

In most cases, the courts will order an investigation and a guardian ad litem review before approving an adoption. This can be a lengthy and complicated process. Aspects of your past or your current situation can be misinterpreted. Having experienced legal guidance can help you avoid serious roadblocks to adoption.

It is important to remember that you are dealing with a bureaucracy that is designed to protect children from possible harm rather than facilitate adoption. Investigators are often looking for anything questionable or out of the ordinary, rather than considering the big picture.

It is also important not to become discouraged. Adoption is a wonderful gift that can make a tremendous difference in a child's life. With the help of an experienced lawyer who knows the system and can guide you through the process step-by-step, you can realize your dream of adopting the child you love.
