There is nothing more gratifying in the practice of law than doing adoptions, either by aiding birth parents place their child in a loving home, or helping the adoptive parents complete their family through adoption. The Law Office of Karen L. Vervaecke is experienced in representing both birth and adoptive parents. It is vital that all parties understand the rights and obligations before signing anything or even starting the process of giving up a child or adding to their family.

In addition to adopting a child that is not related by blood, stepparent adoption is very common in Nebraska.  Again, it is important than all parties understand what they are giving up and assuming before signing anything. Grandparent adoption is not far behind. Adoption can become very contentious in these cases as emotions run high.  Regardless of whether you are seeking to adopt, place a child or if you want to dispute an adoption, you need to seek expert legal advice from The Law Office of  Karen L. Vervaecke.
