Can Adoption Be Done Without An Attorney?

While you aren’t required to retain an attorney for adoption, it is recommended.  You will have to file legal documents and review contracts relating to adoption in NC.  We would advise at least having an attorney to review any adoption documents. 

What Disqualifies You From Adopting A Child?

There are factors will make it more difficult to successfully adopt in NC.  Among them are a history of child or spousal abuse, a crime against children, a crime involving violence, or an aggravated assult on a family or member of your household.  Contact an attorney for more specifics.

How Long Does Adoption Take?

While the adoption time frame can be completed in as little as 6 to 18 months, there are often circumstances that can increase that time.  Though we will also say that having an adoption lawyer can help expedite some of the slower aspects of the NC adoption process.
