Family and Guardian Adoptions in Illinois

The process of a legal adoption can be complex and time-consuming for all parties. The court closely considers the best interests of the child in every case. In some cases, this can take months or even longer. At the Abear Law Offices, we understand the emotional toll going through a lengthy adoption can take on a family. We strive to make the adoption process as smooth and easy as possible while relieving your anxiety about the outcome.

Types of Adoptions

  • There are numerous types of adoptions handled by family law attorneys. These include:
  • Newborn/infant adoptions (through an agency or independently)
  • International adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Same-sex adoptions
  • Interfamily adoptions (kinship adoptions)

Each of these types of adoptions can present its own set of challenges. At our firm, we skilled in anticipating stumbling blocks to the adoption process and avoiding potential pitfalls. For example, issues of parental rights often complicate interfamily adoptions. Where non-custodial parents either cannot be found or refuse to relinquish their parental rights, additional legal maneuvering may be required. Attorney Anthony Abear is experienced in both negotiating and litigating these complex matters. He works closely with his clients from the first consultation through the issuing of the adoption decree and beyond.

If you are pursuing and adoption in DuPage or Kane County, Illinois, contact us at the Abear Law Offices to discuss your case. We can help you navigate the adoption process smoothly so you can build your family and provide stability for your children.
