Guidance Through the Challenging Process of Adoption

 

At the Law Office of Joshua Adam Kittenplan, we guide our clients through the challenging process of adoption.  We explain each step of the adoption to ensure that our clients are familiar with the process.

An adoption can be an incredibly exciting event for a family and provides you the opportunity to start or expand your family.  The process is often laden with an extensive amount of paperwork, as well as background checks, home visits and interviews.  The legal guidance of an accomplished adoption lawyer can help you navigate the intricate and sometimes frustrating adoption process with ease whether it is a step-adoption, nonbiological parent adoption or same sex adoption.
