Adoption Lawyers – Chicago, IL

Serving Chicago & Chicagoland including Cook, Will, DuPage & Lake Counties

Most family law processes — divorce, custody and property division — bring no joy to the family. But adoption is one of the exceptions to this rule. There is nothing as satisfying as successfully connecting a child with a family that will provide for and love that child.

Adopt a Child in Cook County or Will County

At The Walters Law Group, Ltd., we assist families with most kinds of adoption:

~Agency adoption
~Independent adoption
~Foster parent adoption
~Co-parent and second parent adoption
~Stepparent, adult and relative adoption

Because there are different kinds of adoption, and because they often cross jurisdictional lines, including other nations, adoption is often a complicated process, requiring knowledge of the law and balancing the requirements of different parties.

It is especially important, in agreements involving birth parents and surrogates, that agreements are spelled out with unmistakable clarity, to minimize the possibility of wrenching revocation later.

Knowledgeable About Adoption Law Across State and National Borders

We are familiar with the terms of The Indian Child Welfare Act, and work to comply with this law in all adoptions.

Illinois is considered an adoption-friendly state. It places no restrictive limits on either birth or adoptive parents, such as age, religion and not having other children.

If you are considering adoption, we invite you to contact our lawyers to discuss your options. You will find us to be knowledgeable of adoption law and eager to assist you in making a successful addition to your family.
