If you are hoping to start a family, grow your existing family, or provide legal protections for loving relationships with people you already consider family, Louis Wm. Martini, Jr., P.C. is prepared to help. From our offices in Media, PA, we help families throughout Delaware County and Pennsylvania come together through legal adoption. We provide highly professional yet personal service to help ensure the adoption you are contemplating proceeds smoothly and results in a legal, permanent parent-child relationship.
Over more than 20 years, we have helped many prospective parents become new parents through a variety of adoption processes in many different circumstances, including:
We help our clients choose and prepare for a particular adoption process, and guide our clients through every step to ensure compliance with all applicable laws. We also help protect your financial interests and emotional investments throughout the adoption process.
Adoptions in the commonwealth must conform to Pennsylvania law. The good news for prospective parents is that the commonwealth’s rules are among the least restrictive in the country. Requirements you should know about include:
If you are considering an international adoption, you must comply with the laws of the United States and the child’s home country in addition to the laws of the commonwealth.
Louis Wm. Martini, Jr. appreciates the many benefits of creating a lasting legal bond between parent and child. An adoption solidifies emotional connections, bestows legal parental rights, and allows the child the right of inheritance. Adoption can also place the child under your medical coverage.
For these reasons and more, we are eager to help clients navigate the legal aspects of adoption. We assist with every stage of the legal process: we draft and file all necessary court documents, attend all legal hearings and draft any contractual agreements between parents that might be necessary. We are sensitive to and respectful of all clients who want to extend their love to a child. In addition to representing traditional couples, we regularly assist with grandparent, stepparent, and same-sex couple adoptions.
Louis Wm. Martini, Jr., P.C. works tirelessly to help prospective parents navigate the adoption process with success.
