Choosing to welcome a child into your family through adoption is both honorable and commendable. But if you’re interested in adopting a child, you’ll need a family lawyer to stand with you and help see you through. How exactly does a family law attorney aid you as you navigate through the courts? Here’s an overview of what an adoption lawyer does from Trimnal & Myers Attorneys.

What does an adoption lawyer do?

An adoption lawyer will assist you with all areas of the process. Their services include, but are not limited to, securing adoption approval, procuring possible name changes for the minor child or children, and ending the rights of the biological parents. Our lawyers and staff will help you with specific areas of adoption, such as newborn adoptions, adoptions of children out of foster care, and grandparent/stepparent adoptions.

Why is working with an adoption lawyer so important?

Your lawyer will guide you through any legal complexities, as well as other hurdles that could prevent or delay the adoption. Helping you build your family is our ultimate goal, so it brings us joy to help so many South Carolina families secure this dream.
