Domestic Adoptions

New Orleans family law attorneys understand that adding a new member to your family is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in your life. Likewise, giving up your child for adoption can be the best gift you give your baby and the smartest parenting choice you can make. Adoptions are rewarding for all parties involved with the realization that one parent’s ultimate sacrifice will result in a child being raised in a loving home.

Of course, adoptions are also a legal matter and all parties involved, including birth parents and adoptive parents, need sound legal representation and advice throughout the process.  At J.C. Lawrence and Associates, we can provide the legal representation necessary to make your domestic adoption a success. We represent birth and adoptive parents in all types of domestic adoption cases.
