Adoption Department

New Jersey Family Court Attorneys

If you are contemplating adoption, the attorneys at Iandoli & Edens, LLC, can help prospective parents, step-parents and grandparents provide a home and stable family to children through the process.

Contact our law office to speak with a professional about your goals.

You will need a home study and your lawyer can help secure the required study as well as prepare the necessary paperwork. If you have worked with an overseas agency, we will help you complete the court process once your child arrives home.

If you are a step-parent already living with the child, you generally do not require a home study. It can however require, that the non-custodial, biological parent relinquish his or her parental rights in order for the process to be completed. Our firm can handle that process as well as all paperwork involved.

The step-parent approval process is not difficult, yet it brings so many benefits and rights to the child and the parent: the right to inherit, to have a parent who can make legal decisions, and the benefit of belonging.

If a parent has passed away or if they are unable to parent because of an illness or incarceration, grandparents, aunts and uncles and even an older sibling can step in to provide a stable home.  Our lawyers will help you with the process.

Contact the attorneys of Iandoli & Edens, L.L.C. for legal help.
