Adoption

Adopting a child is a wonderful time in your life. The Law Firm of Stacy Snyder Garguilo, P.C. is experienced in representing families through adoptions and guiding you through the adoption process in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We handle:

 

Many of the adoptions handled by the Law Firm of Stacy Snyder Garguilo are by stepparents or relatives who wish to adopt a child living with them. In these cases, the biological parent is either absent from the child's life or is not responsible enough to care for the child. In addition to giving the child the security of a permanent parent-child relationship, adoption gives the adoptive parent all of the legal rights of a biological parent has.

As part of the adoption process, the rights of the biological parent or parents must be terminated. A full and complete termination is essential to ensure that the biological parent does not attempt to undo the adoption later. If the biological parent does not wish to voluntarily terminate his or her rights, there are a number of grounds that Georgia courts will consider when deciding whether those rights should be terminated involuntarily.
