Private Adoption in San Antonio, TX

If you’re looking to expand your family, and want to go about the process of adoption privately rather than through an agency, turn to the Law Office of Perkins & Janis. By going through the private adoption process, you will have more control and even gain parental rights directly from the birthparents rather than from an agency. It also means that you might not have to wait as long to adopt a child. Through private adoption, the adoptive parents often begin possession of the child soon after birth.

Benefits of Private Adoption

1. Fewer Requirements 

When it comes to private adoption, there are fewer requirements for adopting parents than an adoption agency. You only need to meet the requirements of your state's laws. Adoption agencies will sometimes choose to add additional requirements along with these state laws. Private adoption allows for a smoother and less stressful adoption process. 

2. Faster Adoption Process

When you are adopting through an agency, you can be put on a waiting list if they have too many potential adopting parents. This leads to a longer process when you are looking to adopt. With private adoption, you can usually get your profile shown to the expectant parents sooner, leading to a faster adoption process. 

3. Adoption Attorney Assistance 

When you decide to privately adopt, you will work with an adoption attorney instead of an agency to go through the process. Your adoption attorney will help you through the adoption process by helping you complete and understand all paperwork and other requirements. Your adoption attorney is by your side to help you get through the adoption process with as little stress as possible.
