Adoption

Adopting a child is an exciting time for new parents, but it can also be a complicated and emotionally straining legal process. At Blustein, Shapiro, Rich & Barone, LLP, we provide clients with the legal advocacy and compassionate services needed to begin this process.

Our lawyers are intimately familiar with New York adoption laws, and can advise new parents and families on:

  • Step-Parent Adoption
  • Single-Parent Adoption
  • International/Interstate Adoption
  • Surrogate Adoption
  • Grandparent Adoption
  • Foster Care Adoption

In private adoptions, we handle the preparation of the legal documents that will be signed by the birth parents, as well as initiate the process to terminate the parental rights of the biological parents, and to consummate the adoption. We even arrange for the issuance of the new birth certificate for your child.

The services we provide to prospective adoptive clients are as varied as our clients’ needs. We offer pre-placement consultations to help educate parents about the adoption process. Contact us to learn more about how our attorneys can help guide you through the life-changing adoption process.
