Adoption can be one of the most important events of your life; a successful adoption requires that all procedures and details be carried out appropriately and on a timely basis. When a biological parent is no longer in the picture, we often help stepparents and grandparents adopt the child or children they are caring for.
In addition to relative and stepparent adoptions, our firm has assisted families in the adoption of hard-to-place children, and have worked with an adoption agency whose function was to locate children for potential adoptive parents.
Dobbs Law Firm, Inc. is a big proponent of adoption, with Mr. Dobbs experiencing this first hand as the parent of an adopted child.
Guardianship - You may find yourself in a position where you need court approval to care for a parent, a grandchild, an adult child or even a minor child. A guardianship proceeding is the legal process for obtaining this court approval.
