Adoption can seem like a daunting process, but it does not have to be. Adoption can provide a wonderful solution for an unwanted pregnancy, or if you are not able to care for your child yourself. Sometimes the best life for a child is through a sanctioned adoption. Wanting a good life for your child may mean admitting you aren't quite ready to be a parent yourself.

As a pregnant woman, you undoubtedly have many questions about the adoption process in California. At Creative Family Solutions, Cecil Cianci Law, PC, we can walk you through some of the major questions you may have including:

  • Do I get a say in who adopts my child?
  • How can I be sure I am picking a good adoptive family?
  • Can biological parents talk to their children after the adoption process?
  • Do birth parents need to be identified to their children?
  • When does the biological father need to provide consent?
  • Do adopted children need to go to foster care first?

During a reduced-fee consultation at our Roseville or Aliso Viejo office, we can go through any questions about the process. The most important thing is finding the best fit for you and your child.

What If You Don't Want to Give Up Your Child?

Not all biological parents want to give up their children. Sometimes Child Protective Services gets involved and forcibly removes infants from homes. Our attorneys understand this, which is why we can also help parents fight to keep their parental rights. In the eyes of the court, the main three factors that can lead to the termination of parental rights are:

  • Willful child abandonment
  • Any form of abuse
  • Jail or imprisonment

With the termination of parent rights comes the loss of visitation privileges and any input on where the children live, go to school or what religion they are brought up in. At Creative Family Solutions, Cecil Cianci Law, PC, we understand the impact losing a parent has on children, which is why we will work hard to help you keep your parental rights, if possible.
