Growing Families Through Adoption
Adoption can be one of the most exciting, transformative experiences for parents and their children. Raising a child in need is literally a life-changing opportunity for individuals and families. Lawyers at Shumate, Flaherty, Eubanks & Baechtold have extensive experience helping Kentucky residents in Madison County and surrounding counties to navigate the different forms of adoption, with an emphasis on stepparent adoptions.
As you can imagine, adoption cases can prove to be costly and complicated, especially if you don’t have the proper guidance through this lengthy process. Adoptions can take place across states or locally. There are thousands of adoptions across Kentucky each year and roughly 100-200 international adoptions that bring children from outside the U.S. to new families in Kentucky. Our firm understands the legal process and can help you through the different types of adoption, including:
- Private adoptions
- Domestic adoptions
- Contested adoptions
- Stepparent adoptions
