The Adoption Process
The adoption process can be a very emotional period of time for all parties. The birth mother and the adoptive parent or parents are all involved in major life-changing decisions.
The attorneys at Stillings & Buchinger understand the emotional side of adoption, regardless of the reasons or the type of adoption sought. They also are expert advisors on adoption law who will ensure that all of the documentation that needs to be in place is executed, and that all of the t's are crossed and the i's dotted. By working with Stillings & Buchinger, you will have the assurance that every aspect of the adoption was handled properly.
Termination of Parental Rights
The termination of parental rights is a legally binding action approved by a court having jurisdiction over the matter that will end all of the rights and responsibilities of the natural parents of a child. The termination of parental rights may be obtained by consent of the birth parents, such as by stipulation (agreement), or it may be affected by court order, such as when a court orders that one or both parents' parental rights be terminated.
