Adoption Lawyer in New Orleans

Dedicated New Orleans Family Law Attorneys Helping You Grow Your Family

Adding a child to your family can and should be a positive, celebratory experience- not a confusing, frustrating or nerve-racking crash course in complex legal rules and procedures that might just as well be written in hieroglyphics. Rather than risk making a mistake or overlooking some small detail that could lead to a disappointing and possibly disastrous result, work with an experienced New Orleans adoption lawyer from the start.

At Scott, Vicknair, Hair & Checki, LLC, we simplify the adoption process for our clients by clearly explaining each step, by making ourselves available to address questions and new concerns as they arise, and by staying in close contact with clients from beginning to end. We also work hard to resolve all of the legal issues that can arise in conjunction with the adoption process, while costing our clients as little time and money as possible.

Experienced With A Wide Range Of Adoption Situations

Our New Orleans family law attorneys handle many different types of adoptions for individuals and families in the New Orleans area. Each involves unique considerations, procedural steps, and potential pitfalls.

Our family law adoptions practice includes:

  • Intrafamily adoptions, meaning adoptions by relatives such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and so on
  • Adult adoptions
  • State adoptions
  • Private adoptions

Each of these types of adoptions can offer a unique and challenging set of obstacles to be navigated, and completing a stepparent adoption or grandparent adoption can be especially challenging if contested. This is because you may be required to obtain the consent of a biological parent(s). And right or wrong, it's no surprise that some parents won't give consent. In these situations, it becomes necessary to seek termination of the mother's and/or father's parental rights from a court. While this can be extremely complex and difficult to do, we have a strong track record of success.
