Adoptions

There are different types of adoptions, such as step-parent adoption, relative adoptions, and non-relative adoptions.  Once a final order of adoption has been ruled by a court of law, the adoptive parents gain the same rights and responsibilities as parents whose children are born to them; subsequently, an adopted child gains the same rights as birth children in regard to inheritance, child support and other legal matters.  In most U.S. jurisdictions, at the time the adoption is finalized, the adopted child's name is legally changed and the court orders the issuance of a new, amended birth certificate.

If you are considering adoption, you will need to work with an adoption lawyer at some point in the process. It is very important that you choose an attorney that knows the procedures and laws of the state in which you are seeking to adopt.

You should also choose an attorney that you are comfortable with and who can guide you through this emotional and wonderful journey.  Ms. Salinas' expertise along with her personality will ensure that she will be very valuable to you in the adoption process.
