Step Parent Adoption In Ohio

If you are looking for an experienced private adoption attorney serving the Central Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas, we have the knowledge and resources to give you the best adoption experience possible. The mission of our adoption services is to find loving, nurturing homes for children while meeting your needs.

The decision to adopt a child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. There are numerous reasons why individuals choose to have a private adoption. Prospective adoptive parents open their hearts and homes to children while providing them with the safety and security they may not otherwise have. One of the key differences between a private adoption and public adoption is that the birth parents rights will be terminated in probate court.

Typically private adoptions are quicker than an agency adoption. With an agency adoption, that process takes place outside of the courtroom and the agency may not provide the birth mother with a lawyer. The legal custody of the child will go directly from the biological parent to the adopting parents. We respect, honor and understand the individual needs of each birth mother and adoptive parent.

We have helped nearly 2000 adoption cases, helping countless couples realize their dreams of adopting babies and being parents.
