Serving Garden City, Long Island, and Queens, New York
For couples who are unable to have children of their own, adoption is an excellent way to experience the joys of parenthood, and it is truly an example of the very best that family law can accomplish. Adoption is one of the rare practice areas where everyone involved comes out a winner in the end:
- The adopted child gets a fresh start with a loving family that will provide an opportunity for a better life
- The adopting couple gets to start a family of their own and experience the many blessings that accompany parenthood
- The birth parents can rest assured that their baby will be received into a warm, loving family.
Long Island adoption attorney Les Martin is a father of two, and being a parent is one of the most important aspects of his life. As a result, he greatly enjoys having the opportunity to help others enrich their lives by starting a family of their own.
The best way to learn about your rights and options if you are exploring adoption is to speak with Mr. Martin in person. Please call 516-222-0900 today to schedule a consultation at our Garden City law office.
Adoption Law – A Complex Area of Practice
The adoption process is both lengthy and meticulous. There are many steps to complete before you can get legal custody of a child. It is important to work with an adoption attorney who understands all of the nuances of this sophisticated area of law, and who has the skills needed to guide you through this difficult process.
Your adoption lawyer must have the ability to deal with multiple parties, since he will often have to act as an intermediary between you and the adoption agency. If you are adopting a foreign-born child, your lawyer will have to secure visas and work with foreign agencies as well.
The decision to give a child up for adoption is highly emotional, and often birth parents struggle with periods of self-doubt. You will need to work with a caring and compassionate lawyer who can guide both the birth and adoptive parents through this extremely sensitive time in their lives.
