At the Vaughan Firm, you will find information about your options and rights in adoption, resources like counselors and social workers, and a trusted advisor to help you decide if adoption is right for you.

If you.re a birth father, you might be feeling pretty left out right now.
A lot of websites talk about adoptive parents and birth mothers as if they
are the only people involved in adoption. What happened to dad?
While it.s true that birth mothers are the main players in adoption
because they carry and give birth to the child, the truth is that birth
fathers have important legal rights, too. If you are a father (or suspect
that you might be one, but aren.t sure) and have questions about adoption,
contact us. We are happy to answer your
questions about adoption with a confidential consultation.
