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.

Is a father's consent needed before adopting a child??

There are many reasons why people decide to adopt children in North Carolina. It could be because they cannot have children of their own or they could want to give children a loving family who might otherwise not have one without adoption. Likewise, there are many different reasons why people decide to give their children up for adoption. While there are plenty of families looking to adopt and many children waiting to be adopted, there is still a lengthy legal process both must go through before an adoption can be completed.

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.

What is 'pre-placement assessment' in a North Carolina adoption?

Having a family is a goal to which many North Carolina residents aspire. While, traditionally speaking, fulfilling this dream involves having one's own biological children, more and more individuals are opting to adopt for one reason or another. Many times this decision is fueled by a desire to help kids who have lost their own families, and unfortunately, there are many children who fit this description throughout the state and the country. We previously discussed who is eligible to file for adoption, and today we will talk about one step in the process, the 'pre-placement assessment,' also sometimes called a 'home study.'

Who can adopt and be adopted in North Carolina?

Many North Carolina residents have dreamed of having a family of their own since they were young. While some individuals do this through the process of biological birth, there are others ways to create a family. One such method is through the legal adoption process. There may be a myriad of reasons people may turn to adoption, including the inability to conceive a child, wanting a legally recognized parental relationship to a child in one's custody, or simply wanting to help an already existing child find a forever home.

Immigration policy changes shake up international adoption

Many Americans have had wonderful experiences raising children they adopted from other countries. However, adoption is rarely a simple matter, and international adoption presents some unique challenges. When Americans adopt a child from a foreign country, the adoption process is generally controlled by the foreign country's laws. This can mean that unfamiliar legal roadblocks and new political pressures can sometimes present problems for adoptive parents in international adoption.
