Helped by Our Roseville Adoption Lawyers
Adoption is an exciting prospect, and the idea of adding a child to your family can be exhilarating. Unfortunately, the adoption process in California can also be lengthy and complex. It can be hard to know where to even begin.
At Cecil Cianci Law, PC, we understand the mixture of emotions that comes with the decision to adopt a child. We help prospective parents approach adoption logically and methodically, ensuring all bases are covered from a legal perspective.
Our Roseville adoption attorneys have experience in a wide range of adoption cases, and we can help answer some of the pressing questions you might have in a consultation at our office.
Some of the most common questions include:
- How do adoptive parents find the right birth mother? Our attorneys can help all prospective parents research to find the right child to fit their family.
- Can a birth mom change her mind? A birth mother in California has 30 days to change her mind about an adoption. However, our attorneys may be able to draft an agreement that waives this period. Part of the adoption process is making sure it is a good fit for everyone, including the birth mother.
- Who pays for the pregnancy-related costs and hospital fees? It depends on each situation and what both parties are willing to agree to. Our adoption attorneys can help draft a contract that is fair for everyone.
- How involved in the child's life will the birth mom be? This is a matter than can be discussed with the birth mother. The birth mother may want to be a part of the child's life, but you decide together how involved she can be. Your attorney can help determine what involvement you want from the birth mother and include it in the agreement.
