Adoption

Adoption is one of the most rewarding ways to expand a family.  Sara will help you make legal the parent child relationship which has already been established.  It is essential to understand Florida law and  the intricate legal process of adoption.  Sara has extensive experience with handling adoptions and will work closely with you to ensure the process is handled smoothly.  Prior to the child(ren) being freed for adoption, the court will need to terminate the birth parent(s)’s parental rights.   An important consideration will be whether the birth parent(s) consents to the adoption.  Sara will assist in the formal adoption, including obtaining consent from the natural parent(s), filing the necessary paperwork with the court, searching the Florida Putative Father Registry, finalizing the adoption before the court, and obtaining the child(ren)’s new birth certificate.  Sara will hold your hand and guide you throughout the entire process to help make your dream of adopting a reality.

Sara handles the following adoption matters throughout Broward and Palm Beach Counties:

  • Stepparent adoption
  • Relative adoption
  • Adoption through foster care
  • Adult adoption
