Valley Center Adoption Attorneys

Each year, thousands of couples and individuals across the United States make the decision to adopt a child. In adoption, an adult becomes a child's legal guardian and a child becomes a legal dependent on his or her new parent, who provides the emotional, physical, and financial support the child needs.

If you are considering adopting a child, an experienced adoption attorney from Fischer & Van Thiel, LLC can help. To learn more, contact a Valley Center adoption lawyer today by calling 760-722-7646.

Choosing to Adopt

A person or pair may choose to adopt for a range of reasons. Perhaps a couple cannot have their own child, or perhaps a relative decides to take on the care of a loved one's child after the parents’ passing. Willing parents may adopt in different ways, including:

  • Open adoption
  • Adoption within a family
  • Foster system adoptions
  • International adoption

Each method of adoption has its own set of relative advantages and disadvantages, and it is up to the adopting parent or parents to make a decision on the right type of adoption. However, not everyone is automatically qualified to adopt a child. Instead, adoption organizations may take in to account a variety of factors when evaluating potential adoptive parents, such as:

  • Marital status
  • Criminal history
  • Physical and mental disabilities
  • Financial security
  • Social factors

If you are considering adoption, our Valley Center adoption lawyers can help further explain the process of adoption and the particular pros and cons of each method.
