Foster Parent Adoption

The Strongest Bond


There are more than 100,000 children in the U.S. foster care system. Many children in the foster care system need permanent, secure, safe and loving homes. Because the child has already lived in the home with the prospective parents and they want to make it formal, this relationship is perhaps one of the strongest in the adoption world.

Herrin & Leach, an experienced Indiana adoption-only firm, will ensure that you are informed and prepared so that your foster parent adoption process goes smoothly. We will work with you and explain the Indiana foster parent adoption process through our experience in dealing with the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Our services include negotiating post-adoption privileges and the subsidies and assistance that are available to Indiana foster parent families.  We pride ourselves in working hard to obtain the best possible and most fair subsidy available to you from the Federal Title IV-E Adoption Program.  We also accept the NRAE.  Adopting your foster child means never having to say goodbye. Make sure that you have a lawyer on your side to ensure that you receive the support needed for the foster child.

Taking The Worry Out Of The Process

Working with an experienced adoption attorney also ensures that all of your questions will be answered promptly. Any and all state and federal laws that may impact your foster care adoption will be clearly explained to you. The terms of the adoption agreement, if applicable, will be established, and you will be supported and assisted with any legal issues you may encounter during this process.

Foster parenting adoptions offer flexibility and options. Adopting your foster child does not require you to build a relationship with the birth parents or relatives. It does not prohibit you from doing so either. Working with a qualified adoption-only attorney can safeguard your wishes as to what type of contact is allowed.

Foster parent adoptions can seem emotionally draining and frustrating at times. We have helped hundreds of foster parents with their adoption needs, and we will work diligently on your behalf to ensure that you don’t run into legal dilemmas down the road.
