Same-Sex Couple Adoption (Cross Adoptions)
In a process known as cross adoption, New York permits same-sex couples to legally adopt a child. Our firm proudly represents same-sex couples and provides our experienced assistance during these unique legal proceedings.
Eligible family members may be permitted to adopt relatives after they have met certain certification and approval requirements. Our firm has been part of numerous relative adoptions for family members that include grandparents, uncles, aunts, adult siblings, adult cousins, and others.
International adoption can pose many legal difficulties for adoptive parents. From non-Hague adoptions to international adoptions of relatives, our firm is here to help you complete the necessary legal actions in a timely and accurate manner.
It is widely advised that parents who have adopted a child from a foreign country "re-adopt" their child in the U.S. in compliance with state and federal laws. Parents may also need to submit an adopted child's foreign adoption decree for court approval.
Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, and Guardianship Issues
Taking measures to protect the future of your adopted child in the event of unforeseen circumstances is a critical part of the adoption process. Our firm can help you with estate planning, designing a will or trust, or with guardianship issues.
