Adoption in Dakota County

Providing Compassionate Adoption Attorney Services for Eagan and Dakota County Families

Adoption is a legal process in which the rights and responsibilities of a biological parent are transferred to an adoptive parent. These cases typically involve complex emotions, so it’s important to seek out the assistance of a compassionate and experienced family law attorney to ensure that the process proceeds smoothly and successfully.

A Variety of Adoption Options

There are many types of adoption that we can assist you with at Howard Family Law, LLC including:

  • Domestic adoptions
  • Adult Adoptions
  • Relative adoptions (can include a stepparent adoption or a direct relative adoption)

Whatever your adoption goals may be, Howard Family Law, LLC is here to help you lay the foundation for your family’s bright future.

Navigating Potential Complications

There are many complicated issues that may arise during the adoption process. Adoptions may involve the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), the Hague Convention, a termination of parental rights (TPR) proceeding, the Fathers’ Adoption Registry, adoption subsidies, contact agreements, and/or an adult trying to locate his/her birth parents.

It is imperative that both birth parents and adoptive parents obtain representation and/or counseling during the adoption process. Please contact Howard Family Law, LLC to discuss how we can help you with your adoption issue.
