Lawyers in Athens GA

Many of the adoptions our lawyer handles are by stepparents or relatives who wish to adopt a child already living with them. In these cases, the biological parent is either absent from the child’s life or unable to care for the child. In addition to giving the child the security of a permanent parent-child relationship, adoption gives the adoptive parent all the same legal rights as a biological parent.

As part of the adoption process, the rights of the biological parent or parents must be terminated. A full and complete termination is essential to ensure that the biological parent does not try to undo the adoption later. If the biological parent does not wish to voluntarily terminate his or her rights, there are a number of grounds that Georgia courts will consider when deciding whether those rights should be terminated involuntarily.
