San Diego Adoption Attorney

Unlike most other areas of family law, adoption is — under most circumstances — a rewarding process for everyone involved. Adoptive parents are expanding their family and providing opportunities for a child in need. Children of an unplanned pregnancy are given opportunities they may not otherwise have had. Stepparents and stepchildren are capable of strengthening their legal ties — providing them both with the same legal rights and obligations as the biological parent-child relationship.
