In an Independent or Private Adoption, DCS or another Agency is typically not fully involved, except that the adoptive parents will have to be an Agency engaged to conduct a Home Study. The adoptive parents will have to have had physical custody of the child(ren) for the six (6) months prior to the finalization of the adoption. In these cases, the termination of the parental rights may have occurred previously and the adoptive parents move later to finalization of the adoption at a later date.

For weeks on end we searched for an attorney to handle the adoption of our daughter. Dan was recommended to us by a friend and after talking to him briefly we knew he was who we wanted representing us. He had extensive knowledge of the system and was happy to answer our questions. What impressed us most was the way he talked about his own kids and the love he clearly showed for them. I would very enthusiastically recommend Dan for your legal needs!!
