Bringing Families Together Through Adoption
Adoption is an aspect of family law that does not take away from a family, but adds to it. A stepparent can remove the "step" from his or her title. A childless couple can experience the rewards of raising a child. While the steps are complex and sometimes involve disputes, we are at your side the entire time.
That is the level of advocacy that we provide at the Breeden Law Office in Johnston County, North Carolina.
Whether your adoption is consensual or in dispute, you need an attorney experienced in the complex process. Contact us at 919-805-3639 or toll free at 866-346-1680.
Helping Stepparents Formalize A Loving Relationship
At the Breeden Law Office, we represent stepparents who want to formalize a longstanding and loving relationship with a child. If all parties consent to the adoption, the process is much easier. If the biological parent has not taken an active role and is unable to be found, formal notification must take place. If that absentee parent suddenly disputes the adoption, complex steps are taken. Whether that parent was absent or abusive, we move forward with the termination of parental rights.
Helping Couples Without Children Overcome The Challenges Faced In Adoption
Non-stepparent adoptions that involve a couple seeking to add to their family must go through various steps, including background checks, volumes of paperwork and independent home studies. While the study is not required before filing, it is recommended prior to the filing.

We understand the frustration of such a lengthy and arduous process when the adoption of a child is at stake. However, if the reward at the end is that child entering your household or taking the "step" out of stepparent, then every step was worth it.
