Hiring an Adoption Attorney

When hiring an adoption attorney you must choose carefully, to ensure that you are obtaining the best representation possible.   Below are a few of the most important items to consider when making your determination:

*Ask the attorney how many adoption cases he/she has handled.  Ask specific questions about cases they have finalized? What problems have they run into? What is their experience working with an adoption agency?

*Ask what you can expect if you hire the attorney. How soon will they respond to phone calls or emails?  Will you be able to meet with him/her?   Will a paralegal be doing the majority of the work?

*Ask how much of the attorney’s work is adoption related work.  An attorney who spends more time working in the area will be more experienced in the area.

*Ask if the attorney has experience in contested adoptions.   An attorney with extensive experience in contested adoptions can often give you a higher level of service, even if your case isn’t contested.  An attorney with more experience is better able to see, and avoid, potential pitfalls.

*Ask what the attorney charges for your type of adoption?  Are there filing fees? Do you need a pre-placement or post-placement adoption evaluation?   What are the costs for said evaluations?  Are there additional potential costs that could arise at a later date?
