Family Law


Generally, adoptions are happy moments in life for many parties involved. However, it is important to understand the consequences of the adoption before being caught in the euphoria. When people adopt children, they receive all the legal rights to the children, as well as all the obligations, which include financial support and inheritance. In other words, adopted children are as if they are the adopting parents' biological children.

Adopting a child can be a long, drawn-out process, but having an adoption lawyer to expedite the process in an efficient manner is invaluable. There are many steps required to complete child adoptions, including home studies, filing Petitions for Adoption, and hearings. Because adoptions are a serious matter, it is important to ensure all the proper steps are followed and completed properly under Missouri adoption law.
