Adopting a child into your family is a major life event, and it is important to have the guidance and representation of an experienced New York City divorce attorney to help the process move through the system as quickly as possible. Your focus should be on preparing to take on your parental responsibilities and building your relationship with the child, rather than worrying about confusing legal procedures and the filing of documents.

At H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C., we understand how important this adoption is to you and your family, and we are proud to serve you in this process, from beginning to end.

Our firm represents clients with a variety of adoption cases, including:

  • Birth mothers: If you are adopting from the birth mother, there are unique concerns we can help you address, from legally terminating her parental rights to establishing agreements for visitation.
  • Foster children: Our attorneys can also assist you with the process of adopting through the New York State Adoption Service, such as when adopting a foster child.
  • International adoptions: There are special implications of an interstate or international adoption that must be fully addressed to avoid complications in the future.
  • Same-sex couples adoptions: If you are a same-sex couple who wants to adopt, there may be additional obstacles that you face. Our family attorneys can help address these issues with the courts.
  • Step-parent adoptions: Our firm will also help you if you are getting married and wish to make a stepparent adoption of your spouse's child.

As soon as you have decided adopt a child, you should do everything possible to avoid legal barriers that could stand in your way.
