Traditional adoption

When most people think about this topic, they often think about the “traditional” version of adoption, when a family takes in a child who needs a loving home. The process is complex, time-consuming, and, as stated above, intrusive. When a person engages in the adoption process, they need to jump through a few hoops, including background checks, home visits, and other assessments to ensure that the adoption is in the child’s best interests. Depending on the “version” of adoption, the process can be even more intricate and invasive. There are three main types of adoption available:

  • Domestic adoption
  • International adoption
  • Private adoption

Other adoption options

There are many situations that call for adoption outside of the traditional definition. For some, stepping in as a parent when the biological parents cannot care for their children have motivated grandparents, aunts, uncles, and more to formalize their relationships, protecting their future with their child. There are many instances where a stepparent has taken on the task of caring for a child and wishes to do the same. There are even some instances that call for an adult to be adopted. When these situations arise, The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C. is here to help.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
