Helping Families Build New Ties
Adoptions form new parent-child relationships, recognized by the law. And, since the court acts to protect what is deemed in the best interests of children, a number of papers and documentation must be provided in any adoption.
At the Hattiesburg, Mississippi law offices of attorney Timothy M. Farris, we guide parents through the adoption process. Given the requirements placed on prospective parents in regard to verifying financial information, resources, and the nature of one’s home, consulting with a lawyer can facilitate the process and help you avoid delays.
For more information regarding how we can help you adopt a child, contact the law offices of Timothy M. Farris today. We represent clients throughout the state of Mississippi. We are available by appointment and offer free initial consultations.
Our Adoption Practice
At the law office of Timothy M. Farris, we help families with the following kinds of adoptions:
Understanding How to Avoid Delays
In order to finalize an adoption, a number of legal requirements must be satisfied. Parental rights of birth parents must be terminated, putative father claims must be checked, immigration papers finalized for international adoptions, and an in-house study by a social worker must be conducted.
At the law offices of Timothy M. Farris, our attorney and legal support staff serve as a legal clearing house for prospective parents. We review and evaluate documents to ensure all necessary requirements are in order. Additionally, we’re prepared to take whatever legal action is necessary to remedy problems that arise in connection to the termination of parental rights. And, in international adoptions, we can explain immigration issues, as well as certain treaty arrangements that might impact the finalization of your overseas adoption.
