If you are expecting a child and feel that now is not the best time to parent, you have options. At Dempsey Law, we understand that this is a deeply personal and difficult decision, and we are here to offer counsel and support, not judgment. Our team can help you explore your options and understand how placing a child for adoption might impact your life.
As an expecting parent, you have the power to make important decisions about the adoption process, including the type of adoption that you pursue. There are three main types of adoption: open, semi-open, and closed.
Open adoption is a type of adoption where the birth parent can maintain a relationship with the child if they wish. In an open adoption, the adoptive family and the birth parent learn about each other and can stay in contact as the child grows. This type of adoption allows for a more personal connection between the birth parent and the adoptive family and can be a positive experience for all parties involved.
Semi-open adoption is a type of adoption where the parties communicate through the adoption agency, but they do not share personal information. This type of adoption allows for some level of communication but provides more privacy than an open adoption.
Closed adoption is a type of adoption where the parties do not know each other and the birth parent does not maintain a relationship with the child. This option offers the most privacy and may be a good choice for those who want to have as little contact as possible with the adoptive family.
If you already have a family in mind, we can help you identify and communicate your needs during the pregnancy and following the placement. Dempsey Law can also assist you with obtaining financial assistance, counseling, and addressing the rights of the birth father. You are in control of your adoption plan, and we are here to guide you and support you through the process.
We understand that the adoption process can be complex and emotional, and we are here to help make it as smooth and successful as possible. Our team has extensive experience in the field of adoption and is well-versed in the laws and regulations that apply to adoption.
We are committed to helping expectant parents make informed decisions and feel empowered throughout the adoption process. If you are considering adoption, we encourage you to reach out to us to learn more about how we can help. Together, we can explore your options and find the best path forward for you and your child.
