Adopt A Child
Adoption to Build Your Family
We strive to make the process of adopting a child as smooth as possible. We understand the emotional roller coaster you have ridden, and that you are anxious to adopt a child and provide them with a safe, loving home. Each adoption starts with an application and personal consultation with one of the attorneys to discuss your individual adoption goals and the specifics of Florida adoption laws. Once accepted, you will participate in our extensive birth mother outreach program, designed to help each birth parent and adoptive family find their ideal adoption match.
We provide all of our clients with a personal consultation, in person or by telephone, to discuss private adoption in the State of Florida. In order to set a consultation and proceed further, please fill out the Adoption Application Form to the right, sign the Adoption Disclosure with Receipt of Disclosure and submit (by mail) the following:
- $400 (non-refundable) consultation fee
- Recent family photograph(s)
- Copy of your marriage certificate
- Copy of divorce decree from prior marriages (if applicable)
Upon submission and acceptance of your application, our office will contact you to schedule your appointment, which may take place via Skype or telephone, should you reside outside of the State of Florida. Each adoption is individually tailored to meet the requests of both the adoptive parents and the birth family. While we represent the adoptive parents, our attorneys meet with the birth mothers to provide guidance from adoptive parent match through execution of consents, termination of parental rights and finalization of the adoption.
An office assistant is available to answer any questions you may have regarding this process. We look forward to helping you create your family!
