Skilled Attorney For Adoptions And Guardianships

Adoption can be a wonderful experience for both the adoptive parents and the child. It can be a godsend to both parties in situations. In other circumstances, a guardianship may be needed to do what's right for a child or an incapacitated adult.

To make those arrangements effective, however, you've got to create the right legal structure.

I am Kevin W. Thomas, an experienced family law attorney, and I help people do just that. For a free consultation, call my office at 630-485-8012. Based in St. Charles, I serve clients throughout the tri-city area and the surrounding parts of Illinois.

What Circumstances Make You Interested In Adoption?

There are many reasons why you may be interested in adoption. They include:

  • Children who are abused or neglected and require a better home
  • Infertile couples who cannot produce biological children
  • Stepparents who wish to acquire the full legal rights of parenthood
  • Biological parents who wish to adopt a child after establishing paternity
  • Relatives of deceased, incapacitated or unfit parents
  • Pregnant mothers who, for a variety of reasons, believe adoption is a better solution

Whatever your reason for seeking an adoption, it is important to hire an experienced and competent lawyer to represent you in the complicated adoption process. This is because adoptions can be extremely contentious and time-consuming; the turnaround time on most adoptions is measured in months, or even years.

I have 20 years of legal experience, and I devote my entire focus to family law matters. With my guidance and representation, you can have peace of mind that your adoption paperwork, hearings and timelines will be handled efficiently and on time.

Do You Need To Set Up A Guardianship?

I also assist people in securing permanent and temporary legal guardianships of minor children, as well as of incapacitated or disabled adults.

While establishing a guardianship is not the same as adoption — adoption establishes full parental rights while guardianships establish a range of responsibilities that can be determined by relevant parties or a court — assigning a legal guardian can be an extremely rewarding and useful experience.
