Advantages of a Private Adoption
A private or independent adoption does not require the involvement of an
adoption agency – your lawyer is the “middle man” who
goes between the birth parents and the adoptive parents. With the help
of an adoption attorney, a private adoption can help you maneuver through
any legal obstacles that may come up during the process.
Benefits of a private adoption can also include:
Avoid long waiting lists: Typically private adoptions are completed and finalized within a year
of initiating the process.
Less restriction: Agencies often have extremely strict criteria that the adoptive parents
are required to meet. With a private adoption, the course the adoption
process takes is up to the adoptive parents and birth parents of the child.
Direct communication: Either you or your lawyer will be communicating with the birth parents
directly, which can reassure adoptive parents who are worried that the
adoption may fall through before it’s finalized.
