Adoption Attorney Serving DuPage County, Kane County and Will County
Adopting a child can be an exciting and confusing time. The paperwork and process are time-consuming and sometimes frustrating. Whether you are a stepparent who is interested in adopting your spouse's children, a couple planning to adopt a child from a foreign country, a foster parent who wishes to adopt a child in your care, or a person involved in another type of adoption, you need a dedicated attorney who can help you complete the adoption process. Our attorneys have more than 200 years of combined experience and the skills that can help ensure that the adoption process is completed in a timely and efficient manner.
We are approachable, friendly, and accommodating. We have extended office hours to work around your busy schedule: Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m.-3 p.m. When you hire an attorney from Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, you will be working with someone who is devoted to helping you achieve a positive outcome to your case. We can answer your questions about a variety of family law issues related to adoption, including:
- Divorce: If your marriage has ended in divorce, and you have gotten remarried, can your new spouse adopt your children? When doing so, the other parent's parental rights will need to be terminated.
- Child Custody: If you share custody of your children with their other parent, what steps will need to be taken to terminate parental rights if a stepparent wishes to adopt the children?
- Child Support: If a stepparent adopts your child, how will this affect child support? Typically, a parent's child support obligations will end upon the termination of their parental rights.
- Paternity: Even if a child's biological father has not established paternity, he may still need to be notified and give his consent before the child can be adopted. We can assist with issues involving the termination of parental rights.
