Welcoming a Child
What Types of Adoption Are Available?
At Herrin & Leach, our attorneys, John Herrin and Nate Leach, have completed thousands of successful adoptions of all types. While based in Indianapolis, we assist clients across the State of Indiana and the country. And with more than 60 years of combined experience handling adoptions, there are few issues we have not seen or worked to resolve.
We are committed to your needs and understand the potentially stressful and emotional path of adoption. We are committed to your family. You can be assured that your case will be given the attention it requires in a completely confidential manner.
Private adoptions, including newborn adoptions that do not utilize an agency are known as private or independent adoptions.
There are other types of private adoptions, including:
- Stepparent adoptions
- Kinship adoptions
- Same-sex adoptions
Other Types of Adoption
Our lawyers frequently assist with agency adoptions, including those that take place across state boundaries (interstate adoptions) or country borders (international adoption). In addition to agency adoptions, our lawyers regularly work with adoptive parents who are currently fostering a child through the Indiana Department of Child Services in foster parent adoptions.
And if issues arise, we have the experience to step in and assist your family to find a resolution even if it requires litigation.
