Experienced With Louisiana Adoption Procedures

We have assisted numerous families with adoptions, including:

  • Private adoptions
  • Agency adoptions
  • Intra-family adoptions

Stepparents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents may do intra-family adoptions. Relatives may adopt children if the parents are deceased, in prison or unfit to raise the children. Stepparents often wish to adopt the children of their spouses when the other parent is absent or unfit.

In these cases, people may need assistance terminating the other parent's rights before the adoption can proceed. We can draft a voluntary relinquishment of the other party's parental rights.

If the estranged parent refuses to sign away his or her rights or is unable to do so, we can draft an involuntary relinquishment of parental rights. We can provide the legal guidance you need in these situations. When both biological parents are living, the termination of parental rights is a necessary step in the adoption process.
