If you’ve always thought about adopting an older child or a sibling group, this could be the right path for you.

Carrollton Adoption Attorneys

No matter if you are a birth mother or an adoptive family, to ensure your adoption is being completed legally, the services of an adoption attorney are required. Your attorney works in coordination with your agency to ensure that your rights are protected and that the proper laws are followed throughout the process.

Like all aspects of adoption for birth mothers, legal representation is free of charge. Your attorney will be provided by American Adoptions. For adoptive families, we will connect you to a trusted adoption attorney to eliminate the stress of having to find your own experienced professional.

If you choose to work with a different agency that is unable to pair you with representation, or would just prefer to search for your own Carrollton adoption attorney, here are a few you may consider:

Home Study Providers in Carrollton

For adoptive families, one of the first and longest steps in the adoption process is the adoption home study. This is essentially a review of your readiness to become a parent. Although it may sound intimidating, rest easy knowing that your adoption professional will prepare you for every step in the home study process.

This review of your living situation and adoption readiness is conducted by a licensed social worker. When you choose American Adoptions as your agency, as a licensed home study provider, we will be able to provide all of your Carrollton home study services for your adoption.

If you choose to work with an agency that cannot offer this service, we can help you too. Contact us today to learn more or if you would like to research a provider on your own, you can visit 1-800-homestudy to find professionals in your area.

Maternity Hospitals in Carrollton

As a birth mother, when you choose adoption for your baby, you are making one of the most important, selfless decisions of your life. We are here to help make sure that you are as comfortable and taken care of throughout the adoption process, as possible.

We will help you create an adoption plan that will lay out all of the details for the adoption process and also help you create a hospital plan.

This hospital plan will include details for when the time comes to deliver your baby. It’s as detailed as who you want in the room with you during delivery, what kind of contact (if any) you want with the adoptive family, how much time you want with your baby, and more. Remember, all of your medical expenses will be covered through adoption financial assistance, you can focus on having a happy and healthy pregnancy and delivery.

Another of the decisions included in the hospital plan will be which hospital you would like to deliver your baby. You will want to find a hospital you are comfortable with and feel welcomed at.

For your adoption in Carrollton, you have a couple of options:

Carrollton Adoption Finalization Courts

The last step of the process for adoptive families is called adoption finalization. In the months following placement of your baby, there will be a series of post-placement visits, likely by the same professional who helped complete your home study.

The visits will be used to create documentation which will be reviewed by a judge during your finalization hearing. This is a courthouse hearing that occurs six months (or so) after placement. Once the judge reviews your case and issues their final decree of adoption, your finalization is complete and your child is a legally recognized member of your family.

Carrollton stretches in multiple Texas counties, so for exact information on where your finalization hearing will occur, talk to your adoption attorney or visit the Dallas County Courthouse.
