Private adoptions generally occur when prospective families adopt children without using an adoption agency. The biological parents would relinquish their parental rights directly to the adoptive parents, instead of to the adoption agency.
Private adoptions often provide adoptions parents and birth parents with greater control over the process. Each side may choose to meet in an effort to make sure decisions are made in the children's best interests. A flexible arrangement can provide adoptive parents with important information regarding the birth parents' medical history, social or religious background. A private adoption can allow newborns to avoid living in a foster home or another temporary arrangement. Often, newborns adopted through private adoptions go home from the hospital with their adoptive parents.
Private adoptions can be beneficial but there are risks involved. However, the guidance of an experienced adoption lawyer can minimize the potential for risks. At Greenberg Adoption, we have handled more than 4,000 adoptions, many of which were private adoptions. We will apply our years of experience and legal skills to help you navigate through the legal process. We want to make this process at seamless as possible as you expand your family through an adoption.
