Working With An Adoption Attorney

Our expert adoption attorney, Megan Cohen, provides legal services to adopting parents who have been fortunate enough to find a birth mother on their own.  If you have already located or been matched with a birth mother who wishes to place her child with you, our offices would be happy to assist you with any and all legal services.  These may include:

  • Consulting with the mother to identify support needs and assess legal risk 
  • Birth father termination(s) in uncontested matters
  • Strategizing the most efficient and cost-effective way to process the adoption
  • Identifying and coordinating out of state services and obtaining clearances
  • Compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act
  • Birth mother expenses management
  • Planning for future contact with the birth mother and her family
  • Preparing all documents necessary to finalize your adoption
