Compassionate Representation In Foster Care Adoption Cases
Nothing else makes a greater difference to a foster child than the decision by someone to adopt them. For the first time in the child’s life, the promise of a home and of stability becomes possible. Yet adoption of a foster child is a tremendous responsibility. It means that the legal responsibility for that child shifts from a state-funded welfare agency to you as the adoptive parents.

The Foster Adoption Process In Pennsylvania
Like other forms of adoption, the foster adoption process is unique. State agencies typically control such a process. However, once there is finalization of such a process, you as the foster parent will typically have full parental authority in making determinations regarding the child’s welfare.
The lawyers and staff at our firm work with the agencies in Montgomery County and surrounding areas on a regular basis. We understand the requirements each agency and local courts apply when it comes to foster care adoptions.
