Adoption Attorney In Augusta

Smith & Smith Attorneys at Law

Whether a couple decides to adopt a child that is unrelated to them, a new spouse of a divorced parent decides to take the child as his/her own or the grandparents of children whose parents can no longer take care of them decide to take care of those grandchildren, adoption provides more than a mere guardianship would. There are legal advantages to legitimation; such as, rights of inheritance, but there is also a compelling emotional advantage to both the father and the child. Adoption provides the adoptive parent with all of the legal rights and duties that are found in a parent/child relationship. The parent that terminates his/her parental rights is no longer the parent in the eyes of the law.

Assuming these rights through adoption is a serious step with many implications. These rights do not dissolve with a divorce, so we would ask that anyone seeking an adoption be sincere in their application and appreciate the implications of adoption before taking that step.

"Mrs. Beth Ann Smith is a lovely lady. She worked hard on my case day and night and she won me my 5 year old daughter. She will do everything in her power to get you what you deserve...She's there to help you with any questions you have and she understood what pain and stress I was going through and she was just the best. I would go back to her if I ever need legal help again because I know she will get the job done."
