We Create A Caring Environment For Birth Mothers To Complete The Adoption Process
The decision to place a child for adoption can be difficult and stressful. At Talmud Law in Williamsville, we take great care when working with birth mothers to provide comprehensive information on every option available.
If you are an expectant mother with questions about private or agency adoption, we provide a caring environment in which to learn about your rights and your options. If you do not want to work through an adoption agency, and instead wish to select the home your child will be placed in through a private adoption, our lawyers will work with you as you search for parents who meet your requirements.
We have more than a decade of legal experience, most of it focused on adoption and other family law matters. Our clients are assured of working directly with me from start to finish. Call 716-250-9302 to schedule a free initial consultation.
Understanding Costs And How They Are Covered
Young, expectant mothers often are nervous about the costs involved if they place a child for adoption. In private adoptions, a birth mother’s legal and medical expenses are usually covered by the adoptive parents. Because expectant mothers encounter other expenses and may need to reduce the number of hours they work, expenses such as groceries, rent, utilities and other pregnancy-related costs are also often covered in adoption.
It is important to work with a lawyer like ours, who will represent your interests and protect your rights throughout your pregnancy and until the adoption is completed. Under New York law, if an expectant mother was married at the time of conception, both parents’ consent is required to place the baby for adoption. If the expectant mother and father were not married, the father’s consent may not be necessary. We will review the laws with you as they apply to the father of your child. This is yet another reason to work with an attorney who will take the time to explain your options as well as your obligations in clear language.
Learn More About Your Options During A Free Consultation
We can explain the possibility of establishing an open adoption, which allows you to remain in contact with your child’s adoptive parents, and we can discuss your birth parent rights if you change your mind about placing your child in an adoptive home after the child is born.
