In Virginia, there are many types of adoption actions. These include agency adoptions, parental placement adoptions, family member adoptions, foreign adoptions, adult adoptions, and step-parent adoptions. While there are similarities in all types of adoptions, each scenario has a specific set of rules and statutory requirements.
Our firm assists families with all adoption matters, whether they are contested adoptions, or cases in which the natural parent or parents’ consent to the adoption. In addition to filing pleadings with the Circuit Court, contested adoptions require a hearing before a judge to present evidence in support of or against the requested adoption. Our firm has successfully represented clients in many types of adoptions, and on both sides of contested adoption cases.
If you have an adoption question, please feel free to call us at (804) 717-1969.
