Skilled Attorney For Adoptions And Guardianships

Adoption can be a wonderful experience for both the adoptive parents and the child.

In other circumstances, a guardianship may be needed to do what's right for a child or an incapacitated adult. To ensure these arrangements are effective, you need to create the right legal structure.

At The Law Office of Kevin W. Thomas, I help people successfully resolve complex adoption and guardianship matters. I am an attorney who has dedicated his practice to solely working on family law issues.

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 understand that adoption can be extremely contentious and time-consuming. The turnaround time on most adoptions is measured in months, or even years. You need to hire an experienced and competent lawyer to represent you throughout the adoption process.

I have more than 25 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 resolved efficiently and on time.

Do You Need To Set Up A Guardianship?

In addition to divorce-related issues and adoption, 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.
