There’s nothing more exciting than the months leading up to your adoption. The prospect of bringing a child into your home is a joy that’s unparalleled. Whether you’re adopting from across the globe or across the town, there’s a sense of completion and gratification that only grows as the date nears.

So what’s to fear? Well, if adopting your new child were as easy as anticipating him or her, then there’d be no issue. But the unfortunate fact is, adoption isn’t always the freshly paved parkway we all hope for.

Any number of legal issues can pop up along the way, which is why you need a trained lawyer to guide you through the process. The team at Klok Law Firm LLC has prepared five real-world examples of why you should consult the right law firm before you dive into the process:

  1. No two adoptions are alike. You may adopt from the same state, or even same town as friends or family, but the adoption process always varies. An experienced lawyer can help you through the ins and outs you may have never expected.
  2. Communication can be difficult. Depending on whether you’re adopting from a family or an orphanage, it can be difficult to establish a consistent form of communication. Let your lawyer monitor the discussion so you can prepare your household without worry.
  3. Birthparents have rights. If you’re in contact with the birthparents of your new child, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you sort through their rights and privileges. Visitation and financial contribution may be easier to organize with the help of a legal team.
  4. Adoption comes with a price tag. Filing forms, hashing out agreements and exchanging information comes at a cost. Your legal team will be able to determine the best mode of action in every case, so you can adopt economically.
  5. You need representation in the courtroom. Depending on the niceties of the adoption, you may need court representation. The right legal team will be able to assist you in court from start to finish.
