York Adoption Attorney

Looking to Adopt a Child in Lancaster, Pennsylvania?

Adoption is a legal process in which a person assumes the rights and responsibilities of raising another individual's child. There are many steps involved in adopting a child that a York family law attorney can explain. Adoption laws vary depending on the location of the child that is being adopted, such as a child living in the state, in another state, or in another country.

There are also special requirements that must be met by the biological mother if she is a minor. If you are planning to adopt a child, you will be required to go through some form of home study. This includes home inspections and interviews to evaluate your ability to raise a child.

Ilkhanoff & Silverstein is a skilled family law firm that has helped many of our clients adopt a child, and are pleased to assist you in the legal matters that bring a child into a loving family. We are well-versed in the adoption process and can give you reliable legal advice if you are intending to adopt. Attorneys at our office have served as officers of the York County Bar Association and Southern Branch of the YMCA. We are also former directors of the family law section of the York County Bar Association.
