Helping Would-Be Adoptive Parents Make their Dreams Come True
Building and growing one’s family is one of life’s greatest joys, and many families choose to do so by adopting a child. Adoption is the legal process by which a non-biological parent takes responsibility for, and custody of a child and their rights become equal to those of natural parents under the law. Georgia law recognizes some circumstances in which a child may be adopted, most commonly, adoption by third parties who seek to be parents, stepparents, and biological relatives of the child.
Although the happiness of adopting a child finally sets in when the child is welcomed into the home, the soon-to-be parents must undergo a demanding and extensive legal process to get to that point. Our Macon family lawyers at Cooper, Draughon & Cooper have years of experience navigating the legal hurdles to adoption and providing much-needed security to growing families. We are dedicated to helping our clients understand the complexities of adoption law in Georgia, and we are committed to helping families of all forms, shapes, and sizes.
Our attorneys have experience in all five types of adoptions under Georgia law:
- Step-parent and “Second-parent” Adoptions
- Agency Adoptions
- Third Party Adoptions
- International Adoptions
- Adult Adoptions
If you, your spouse or partner, and your family are considering adopting a child, Cooper, Draughon & Cooper would be honored to advocate on your behalf and to guide you to that point where you gain full legal parental rights.
