Families come together in many ways. Our office assists with contested and uncontested adoptions, depending on the circumstances. We routinely help families completing their DCYF journey through the foster-adoption process. We understand the final legal pieces coming together are often long-awaited and prioritize getting these cases done quickly, within the proscribed DCYF reimbursement budget.
Please call with questions about adoptions generally, including the process involved with adult, stepparent, second parent, and other, more challenging familial circumstances.
