Compassionate Legal Guidance As You Build Your Family
Whether you just married someone who already has a child or you want to grow your family by giving a child a stable and loving home, adoption can be a beautiful and fulfilling process. At the same time, the adoption process can be emotional, sensitive and overwhelming for your entire family. Adoption laws in Oklahoma can be complex and constantly change to protect children and promote their best interests.
At Swain Law Group in Norman, we provide compassionate support as you go through the adoption process. When you work with us, you receive personalized attention and legal guidance tailored to your unique situation.
Overcoming Obstacles Throughout The Adoption Process
When you want to legally adopt an infant or your spouse’s child, you must first go through the confusing and sometimes lengthy adoption process. The adoption process is never simple, and each case presents unique challenges and roadblocks to overcome. Having an experienced family law attorney by your side can help streamline the process and avoid unnecessary complications.
We can help you with a variety of adoptions, including:
- Step-parent adoptions
- Infant adoptions
- The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)
Step-parent adoptions can be easier to navigate than ICWA or infant adoptions in Oklahoma. However, you should still work with an experienced attorney to ensure that no mistakes are made that could jeopardize your adoption. One major hurdle that step-parents face is obtaining the other birth parent’s consent. If the other birth parent seems unlikely to consent, our attorneys can help you take the next steps with the court.
