Helping You Achieve Your Adoption Goals

While the adoption process may seem relatively straightforward, they are anything but straightforward.  There are many factors that can delay or even derail an adoption. To ensure that your interests are protected and that you achieve your desired goal, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.

At Harrison & Medlin, P.C., we facilitate all types of adoptions, including stepparent adoptions and private adoptions. We also represent clients in contested third-party adoptions. In every case, we seek to achieve our clients’ family law goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

For a consultation about an adoption matter, contact our firm. We represent clients throughout the Central Savannah River Area of Georgia, including the cities of Augusta, Evans and Martinez.

Stepparent Adoption Attorneys

The addition of a new child to a family is a blessed event. Our firm will work hard to achieve your adoption in a smooth and efficient manner.

When you retain our firm to represent you, a lawyer at our firm will:

  • Explain the adoption process, as well as your rights and responsibilities as a parent
  • Prepare and file the adoption petition
  • Explain and prepare you for the home visit by a Georgia social worker (if necessary)
  • Obtain a new birth certificate with the name of the new parent

If the new parent has a criminal record, this can open doors that can complicate and delay the process. We are experienced criminal defense attorneys, and if it is necessary, Harrison & Medlin, P.C. will work to clean up any such problems in advance.
