Growing Your Family
Through Adoption

Some people start out with the goal of becoming parents by adopting. They may need to spend time looking for a child through an agency or private referrals. Other people already enjoy a nurturing relationship with a child and want to formalize the family structure through adoption.

Whatever your pathway to adoption has been so far, you likely realize that you need an attorney to help you through the process. We offer personalized and efficient guidance through all the necessary steps of a Pennsylvania adoption. With more than 35 years of combined experience in family law, our family law attorneys are prepared to tailor legal guidance to your needs as you pursue adoption.

Ensuring A Stable Foundation For Your New Parent-Child Relationship

The word “adoption” tends to bring up positive connotations in many people’s minds, including love, choice and security. Aspiring adoptive parents choose to make a child a permanent part of their families. However, complexities may stand in the way. An attorney’s guidance can ensure that:

  • All legal requirements are fulfilled according to the laws of Pennsylvania

  • Necessary steps such as a home study are accomplished as smoothly as possible

  • The parental rights of the biological parents are terminated

  • There are no legal gaps or loopholes that might make the adoption reversible


Whether you are nervous, excited or just eager to get the adoption completed, a family law attorney at SDS Family Law Group can guide you with reassurance.

Look Forward To The Judge’s “Congrats!”

Now that your adoption plan is in motion, you likely hope to see that day come sooner rather than later. The law firm of SDS Family Law Group is ready to help you along the road to “Done!” A family law attorney from the firm will inform you in detail what steps are needed to complete your:
