Adoption refers to the process by which an adult becomes the legal parent of a child who is not their biological offspring. We believe that adoption is a situation with multiple benefits: children are given a chance at life, couples unable to have children of their own are blessed with the child they have always wanted and birth mothers have the comfort of knowing that their child is in a loving and secure home. Once a child is adopted, the adoptive parent has all of the rights and responsibilities of a natural parent. Just the same, the adopted child acquires all of the rights and responsibilities of a natural child of the adoptive parent.
The adoption process is both intimidating and emotionally gratifying. The laws regarding adoption are complex and can be confusing. When you choose the path of adoption, the experienced professionals at McManus Law Firm can help guide you through the process and will provide information in an easily understandable manner.
