There's no one type of North Carolina adoption

When North Carolina residents think about adoption, it is likely that their minds turn to an infant who has no parents and a kindly couple willing to take the child in as their own. While this scenario certainly describes some adoptions, it does not do justice to the depth and breadth of adoption experiences had by people in the modern United States. There are many reasons for adoption, and many ways it can help families that need to have some legal certainty with regard to domestic relationships.

There are the traditional orphan adoptions, where a child who needs parents is united with a person or a couple who want to raise that child, and give him or her a new opportunity to succeed in life. These children can be babies, toddlers, or even teenagers who need guidance and lots of understanding. There are step-parent adoptions, where a new legal family unit is created out of the elements of a previously existing one. Then there are adult adoptions, where a person may want to create a familial relationship with another for sentimental reasons or in order to make bequeathing an inheritance easier.

At the Grahamnuckollsconner Law Firm, we realize just as there's no one kind of adoption, there are a myriad of potential issues that adoptive families might face. Whether going through home studies, dealing with notifying an absent father, terminating parental rights, or dealing with the immigration aspects of a foreign adoption, there are any number of complex challenges that can arise during even a relatively 'simple' adoption proceeding. We stand ready to help these North Carolinians find legal answers to their legal questions so that, hopefully, their family can legally expand.

Prospective adoptive families take all shapes and sizes, and there is no one correct way to approach every adoption situation. Luckily, there are experienced North Carolina professionals who have dealt with all kinds of adoptions and are available to aid those who may need to consider the legal ramifications of going the adoption route to build their families.
