Finality is the hallmark of a good North Carolina adoption

There are myriad reasons that a North Carolinian might want to consider adoption. Whether it is to begin a family or expand one, to take in a child who has no other place to go or to 'legalize' an already existing parental relationship is personal and important. Making certain the process goes smoothly, and results in the desired outcome, is essential to both the adopter and the adoptee.

Because adoption is a legal process, there are many rules and regulations to follow in order to complete the procedure. This goes beyond just passing a pre-placement assessment when one is required. When one of these rules is broken or forgotten, not only might the process fall apart before it can be finished, any order resulting from it may be voidable. If a biological parent's rights are not terminated correctly, or an interested party does not receive proper notice, even if a final order is entered, the newly-minted family may face problems down the road.

Imagine the stress and anguish of finding out one's new child may be taken away because some legal rule wasn't followed, and the adoption is not fully enforceable. To have to fight for the adoption all over again can be terrible for both the family and the child, who was possibly just about to find the first stability in his or her life.

Because of this, North Carolina residents who are seeking to adopt may wish to consider seeking professional help when navigating the process. Experienced family lawyers know the ins and outs of the system and how to make as certain as possible that final orders that are issued by an adoption court are, indeed, final. This kind of security is in the best interests of the child and the pre-adoptive family.
