Understanding adoption law in New York
Adoption is a legal matter, and like most legal matters, it can be complex. However, with the help of a knowledgeable Brooklyn family law lawyer, you can navigate successfully through the system.
According to New York law, unless you are a single parent, both you and your spouse must consent to an adoption. However, if a parent chooses to give up parental rights, that person’s consent is not required. Children must be 14 years of age or older to consent to an adoption. Adoption agencies acting as legal guardians may also consent to adoption.
Types of adoptions
Our child adoption lawyers can provide you with professional, compassionate representation and attentive, responsive service from start to finish for the following matters:
- Uncontested adoptions — parties in agreement
- Contested adoptions — biological parents object
- Agency adoptions — work with agency
In uncontested adoptions — where all parties agree to the adoption — we prepare all necessary paperwork, obtain background searches on adoptive parents, retrieve divorce papers when necessary and represent clients in court to transfer parental rights and responsibilities to the adoptive parent.
When a biological parent objects to the adoption in a court proceeding, the adoption is considered contested. Our lawyers can prepare all paperwork, meet all parties involved and aggressively represent you in a contested adoption hearing.
As well-respected child adoption attorneys in Brooklyn, we also provide agency adoption services, working effectively with agencies to get adoptions through as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
