Fortunately, a good adoption attorney can help make the process a little easier on everyone involved. These lawyers will guide you through the process, educate you on what you can expect with each stage of the process, and answer all of the questions you will most certainly have when you wish to adopt.
If you decide to visit more than one adoption lawyer, it’s good to have the same list of questions to ask each of them. This way, it’s easier to decide which lawyer to choose in the end. And if you’re wondering what types of questions to ask them, below are a handful of them you can start with.
1. What Are the Lawyer’s Qualifications?
A good adoption attorney should have the experience and knowledge to know all about the adoption process, whether you choose a domestic adoption or an international one. Ask about their experience, how many adoptions they’ve handled, and what percentage of their business is devoted exclusively to adoptions.
Adoption laws can be complex, so you’ll want an attorney who devotes a minimum of 50% of their practice to adoption. If you find a lawyer who devotes all of their time to adoptions, that’s even better. Just make sure that they know what they are doing in this area of the law.
