Are you Considering Adoption?

Welcoming a new child, or children, into your family is one of the greatest joys in life. Many families in Pennsylvania are interested in adoption, but not aware of the legal steps ahead to ensure that it is carried out in the most efficient and ethical way possible. The laws can be very confusing and we want to ensure that you understand the importance of consulting with an experienced attorney.

Adoption is the process where a person assumes the parenting of a child, from that person’s biological or legal parent(s). In so doing,  all rights and responsibilities, along with filiation, are fully transferred from the biological parent or parents. Unlike guardianship or other systems designed for the care youth, adoption is intended to effect a permanent change in status.

Mullaney & Mullaney will guide you through both private and agency adoptions to support:

  • Newborn adoption
  • Stepparent adoption
  • Foster parent options
  • International adoption
  • Assisted reproductive technology (ART) – fertility medication, in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, and surrogacy
