New York Domestic Adoption Attorney

Domestic Private Placement Adoption

Domestic adoption, or private placement adoption, is a process that takes place exclusively in the United States and occurs when a birth mother or birth parent(s) place a child directly with the adoptive parent(s). The key aspect to private placement adoption is that the connection occurs without the assistance or interaction of an adoption agency.

The birth parents and adoptive parents typically have found each other through some sort of advertising medium including:

  • Print media
  • Social networking
  • Business cards
  • The internet
  • Good old fashion word of mouth by family and friends

Once found, the two parties determine if they are right for one another and make an adoption plan together.

Before the search begins for the adoptive family, legal steps must be taken. These legal procedures are crucial to the adoption process. In addition, families must know where and if they are permitted to advertise in any given state, sometimes referred to as the sending state. All of these points are aspects of the law that adoptive parents need to fully understand and discuss with a knowledgeable New York adoption attorney.

The initial contact between the adoptive parent and birth parent is the time for information to be exchanged so that all involved parties can make an informed decision. Caution, confidentiality and common sense are necessary characteristics to display during the contact stage between the birth parents and adoptive parents. With the support, assistance and advice that our New York adoption attorneys can provide, all parties can feel more comfortable about moving forward, or perhaps not moving forward, with an adoption plan together.
