Adopting a child is a life-changing experience that can have a positive impact on children, families, and communities for many years to come. The National Council for Adoption reports that approximately 120,000 adoptions are finalized in the United States every year, with about 35 percent of those being relative/stepparent adoptions and 65 percent being unrelated adoptions. If you’ve decided to adopt, you’ll want a knowledgeable advocate on the side to help you through the process.

There are a number of ways to adopt a child. If you are considering adoption, it is imperative that you seek guidance from an Illinois adoption attorney who has the relevant experience needed to protect your rights and interests. Trent West is an experienced family lawyer who handles all types of adoptions, including:

  • Relative & Stepparent Adoptions: Under the Illinois Adoption Act, blood relatives and stepparents may be able to adopt a child with parental consent or due to lack of parental fitness.
  • Private Adoptions: For many Illinois families, the best way to adopt is independently, with the guidance of a private attorney. This adoption method allows for additional flexibility.

We know that adopting a child is a sensitive and complicated process. At the Law Offices of Glenn & West, LLC, our adoption attorney is prepared to help you navigate the adoption system. No matter the nature of your specific circumstances, we will take the time to:

  • Answer your questions
  • Understand your unique situation and your goals
  • Help you take the proper steps to finalize the adoption
  • Establish and protect your parental rights

Adoptions should always be handled on a case-by-case basis. You and your family deserve full personalized legal representation from a compassionate attorney.
