A Skilled Adoption Attorney Helping Grandparents And Stepparents
Sometimes, becoming a parent through adoption is the only solution in helping a child lead a life that does not include neglect, abuse and sadness.

Fighting For You In The Adoption Process
Attentive, astute and understanding, Ms. Hills will guide you through the adoption process. Whether it starts off in a smooth or bumpy manner, she focuses on results.
In adoption scenarios involving grandparents and stepparents, the biological parent is usually incapable of raising the children and must relinquish his or her parental rights. This is difficult to accomplish, and it’s a lengthy process that likely requires a courtroom trial. We will negotiate on your behalf to the best of our abilities and fight for you in court, as Ms. Hills is a trial-tested attorney.
The involuntary termination of parental rights usually comes about due to a number of reasons such as:
- Extreme neglect of the children
- Failing to support or maintain contact with the children
- Sexual and physical abuse against the children
- Serious mental illness
- Long-term dependence on drugs and alcohol
- Certain felony convictions
You have a deep love for your grandchild or stepchild, and you want to make sure you can stay in their lives and have a long-term, positive effect on them. Adoption is a complicated step in which you need to rely on the insight of an experienced attorney.
