Adoption is a wonderful act one can bestow on a child who needs a home. There are countless children who need loving homes. There are many parents who want children. Our firm can bring those two factors together. We successfully unite families and make adoption come true for our New York clients. There are countless other reasons for people to choose adoption as well, including stepparents and grandparents that have taken a parental role in a child’s life.

New York adoptions

Families hoping to open their hearts to another in need are just some of the adoption issues people face. There are many instances of people who act as a guardian for a child for a long time and they wish to legally adopt the child and make the relationship official. There are other instances where a stepparent wishes to solidify the relationship with their spouse’s child. When a grandparent acts as guardian to a child, they may choose adoption to protect the child from legal action. Penichet & Alberga LLP helps these individuals and more. The firm represents adoptive parents and birth parents facing adoption matters, including:

  • Adult adoptions
  • Domestic adoption
