I am Pregnant And Planning to Put My Baby Up For Adoption. Should I Call Adoption Agencies or Adoption Attorneys?
I am pregnant and planning to give my baby up for adoption. Doing research on the internet, I found out that many adoption agencies and attorneys are providing adoption services in Florida. My friend, who has recently put her baby up for adoption in Florida, suggested that I contact a licensed adoption attorney.
I am now confused and cannot decide. You are not alone. We, at The Law Offices of Berkowitz & White, can help you explain the differences between adoption agencies and attorneys. However, the final decision will entirely depend on you.
If you are pregnant and decide to give your child up for adoption through an adoption agency, you may need to follow strict rules.
Adoption attorneys, like us, allow a would-be mother to live on her terms. She can make the choice that is best for her and her child.
Getting Legal Help
Both adoption agencies and attorneys can offer confidential legal services to pregnant women. Adoption agencies usually hire attorneys from outside, whereas attorneys already know all the legal aspects of adoption.
Birth Mother Support
It may take multiple days for the agency caseworker to arrange financial help and support for birth mothers.
Most adoption attorneys work with the birth mother directly and can provide real-time help and support. We provide more personalized service and experience for the birth mother.
Choosing Best Family For Your Baby
Adoption attorneys, like us, use large networks to help pregnant moms choose the best family for their babies. Most agencies maintain a list of adoptive families hoping to adopt. Pregnant moms can select a family only from that current list.
