Welcoming a new child into the home is an exciting time for parents!
With adoption, a parent’s excitement doesn’t happen with a trip home from the hospital but the courthouse.
Our office has experience assisting parents both with agency adoptions and with private adoptions. Adoption is an exciting time for families, and we want to help you with this process.
Does your loved one need guardianship?
If a loved one in your life has a disability and that disability impacts their ability to make decisions about daily life so that they cannot manage their finances and medical care, you may need to petition the court for guardianship.
Guardianship is a proceeding that takes away the disabled person’s legal right to make most decisions and places that decision-making authority in the hands of a guardian.
