It is extremely important to choose an adoption attorney that is experienced with adoptions. Adoption is a highly technical legal process that if not done correctly, can have dire consequences to your family. The adoption attorneys at O'Hara, Ruberg, Taylor, Sergent & Sloan have experience in representing parents in all forms of adoption, including contested adoption.

There are several forms of adoptions:

  • Step-parent adoption is when the spouse of the child's parent wishes to adopt their step child.
  • Foreign adoption is when an individual or couple wishes to adopt a child from outside of the United States. 
  • Private adoption is when an individual or couple wishes to adopt a child where the adoptive parent(s) and biological parent(s) without the aid of an agency. This is usually when the adoptive parent(s) and biological parent(s) are introduced through a family member or friend.
  • Foster adoption is when a foster parent wishes to adopt a child placed with them by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
  • Agency adoption is when adoptive parent(s) work with a licensed adoption agency in matching them with a child in need of adoption.
