Adoption can be a complex and emotional process, and the attorneys at Harden Jackson Law understand that. As an experienced adoption lawyer, we know how to navigate the legal system to help our clients achieve their goals. Our team has extensive experience in both domestic and international adoptions and can help guide you through every step of the process.
Re-adoptions (Domesticating Foreign Decrees)
A re-adoption is the process of obtaining a domestic court order that recognizes and enforces a foreign adoption decree. We can assist with the process of domesticating foreign adoption decrees.
Adopting a child from another country involves navigating a complex legal system. Our attorneys can assist with every aspect of international adoption, including compliance with the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption and the Immigration and Nationality Act.
Domestic adoptions involve adopting a child within the United States. We can assist with every aspect of the process, including working with adoption agencies, birth mothers, and adoptive parents.
Birth (Expectant) Parent Representation
We provide legal representation to birth parents or expectant mothers who are considering placing a child for adoption. Our attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and options and provide support throughout the adoption process.
Adoption disruptions can be emotionally challenging for everyone involved. Our attorneys can help navigate the legal issues that can arise from an adoption disruption and provide guidance and support during this difficult time.
Second Parent Adoptions/Stepparent Adoptions
Second-parent adoptions and stepparent adoptions involve adopting a child when one parent is already a legal parent. We can help with every aspect of the process, including working with the non-legal parent and navigating the legal system.
Orphan Visa (R-3 and R-4) Appeals (I-600 Notice of Intent to Deny “NOIDS”)
Orphan visas are available for children who are orphans, have been abandoned, or whose parents cannot care for them. We can assist with every aspect of the process, including dealing with denials or other issues that may arise.
International Family Law
Our attorneys have experience in international family law matters, including divorce, custody, and abduction cases.
International Divorce Issues
International divorce cases involve complex legal issues and require attorneys with experience in international family law matters. We can assist with every aspect of the divorce process, including child custody and support issues.
International Custody Issues
Child custody disputes can be challenging, especially when they cross international borders. Our attorneys have experience in international custody matters and can provide guidance and representation in these complex cases.
International Abductions (Abduction Prevention)
When a child is taken across international borders without the consent of both parents, it is considered an international abduction. Our attorneys can assist with abduction prevention and provide representation in international abduction cases.
