Let Us Help You Make Your Family Complete
Adopting a child is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in a parent’s life. While there are so many benefits, the process can certainly be overwhelming. From a legal standpoint, there are many things you are required to take care of. You may be unsure of what to expect, and it can be intimidating. If you are considering adoption, you need an attorney who understands how important family is. Since 1997, Lutz & Associates, P.S. has helped families throughout Tacoma. We want to help you, too.
What To Expect
Whether you are considering adoption or have already gotten started, we can help guide you and prepare you for what to expect. First of all, Washington requires you to complete a home study. This means family members will be interviewed and a series of home visits will take place. We can answer any questions you may have and will help you create a healthy and happy environment that is fit for a child.
While the adoption agency searches for the perfect fit, there are court procedures that must take place. Every adoption must be approved by an adoption court. It is their job to make sure the best interest of the child is being met. Any single adult or married couple may adopt, and the court wants to make sure everyone is prepared. We’re here to help you get ready.
If I am a stepmother/father, can I adopt the children?
That may be an option. Also, in some cases, stepparents have rights to remain in the lives of their stepchildren.
