FIA answers questions about the adoption process.

Common Questions: “When creating an adoption plan, do I need my own attorney?”

As a New York Adoption Agency, Friends in Adoption, works with dozens of expectant mothers each year. We meet all kinds of wonderful people and help them through one of the toughest times they’ll ever experience. In the course of our work, we are asked lots of great questions about adoption and the adoption process. Today, we’re going to highlight one of the most common questions: “If I decide to place my child for adoption, do I need to have my own attorney or would the agency’s attorney advise me?”

The answer to this question is simple: you would have your own attorney that represents you, not Friends in Adoption. The attorney would be a qualified adoption attorney and would be paid for through the adoption process. Although Friends in Adoption may connect you with this attorney, they will always advocate for you, listen to you and work in your best interest.
