Adoption Law

Adoption law in the U.S. usually falls into two types: agency and independent.[ Adoption agencies must be licensed by the state in which they operate. In New York State, there are unique laws that govern adoption as well.

There are both private and public adoption agencies. Private adoption agencies often focus on infant adoptions, while public adoption agencies typically help find homes for waiting children, many of them presently in foster care and in need of a permanent loving home.

Independent adoptions are usually arranged by attorneys and typically involve newborn children. Approximately 55% of all U.S. newborn adoptions are completed via independent adoption.
Adoption is changing the way people form families, as well as affecting the way society perceives the fundamental concepts of life such as nature vs. nurture and the role of biological relations with an adoptive family member.

Many of the changes that have occurred regarding Adoption Law over the past few decades have been substantial. It is important to work with an adoption attorney who knows the system, has experience in the field, and can set a course for success for an adoption.
