Legal Representation For Adoption

Adopting a child is a joyous occasion, whether you are becoming parents for the first time, adopting a foster child, relative or stepchild. At Capps, Cantwell, Capps & Byrd, we are committed to helping you through the entire adoption process with personal service, honest advice and the care you deserve.

The adoption process is complex and requires an in-depth understanding of what steps to take and how to properly finalize the adoption. Our lawyers know what steps to take every step of the way to help you and your family.

Helping You Adopt

We represent individuals and families in Morristown and the surrounding areas with adoptions involving:

  • Prospective adoptive parents
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Foster child adoptions
  • Relative adoptions

Parental rights will need to be terminated in adoption. If one or both parents does not willingly terminate their parental rights, we will help you pursue the legal process for terminating their parental rights so you can continue with the adoption.

Representing Biological Parents

Our attorneys also represent biological parents whose parental rights may be in jeopardy. We will help you understand your rights and legal options to maintain your parental rights and to explore all options to obtain visitation or a new parenting plan arrangement.

Working With The Department Of Children's Services

Our firm is sometimes retained by the Department of Children's Services to represent adoptive parents or serve as guardian ad litem. This experience gives us a unique perspective when representing prospective parents, stepparents and relatives in adoption cases.
