Agency Adoptions in Florida

Let Our Okaloosa County Adoption Attorney Guide You

If you are planning to bring a child into your family by way of adoption, there are a number of benefits to using an agency to complete the adoption – agencies often provide a number of resources such as training and counseling for adoptive parents. At Chesser & Barr, P.A. our goal is to help you successfully bring a child without a home into your family.

The adoption attorneys at our firm have the skill and insight to help you navigate through the adoption process. Although agencies will offer a multitude of resources, you should not pursue this worthy endeavor without proper representation and guidance.

Call Chesser & Barr, P.A. today at (850) 610-7471 to learn how we can help.

The Adoption Process

The adoption process typically includes several steps that involve meetings, paperwork, and background checks. From start to finish, adopting a child can take up to 9 months to finalize – should there be any delays in your adoption case, you’ll need a trusted legal advocate by your side to help circumvent any foreseeable issues and prevent other discrepancies from occurring.

The adoption process can include the following steps:

  • Orientation: Prospective parents will be given the opportunity to talk to experienced adoptive parents and counselors
  • Preparation course: Adoptive parents will be able to assess their family and learn about adoption issues
  • Home study: Local, state, and federal background checks are done to ensure that you can provide a child with a safe and secure home environment
