For Mothers
The decision to make an adoption plan for your child is one of the hardest and most important decisions you will ever make. Having a trusted advisor to guide you through the process and look out for your rights can make this difficult time easier. 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. What you won't find here is judgment, pressure, or obligation.

Our free, confidential consultation is a good place to start. At this meeting we will explore your options, explain your rights, and point you toward resources that can help you. We will explain the different types of adoption, the steps involved, and how to get started. Most of all, we will listen to you, answer your questions, and help you make an adoption plan that fits.

If you decide that adoption is right for you, our firm can provide a full range of services to help you through the adoption process, including:
  • Preparation and filing of the necessary court documents
  • Advice and referrals to other services you might need, like health care, counseling, etc.
  • Negotiating agreements with the adoptive family
  • Answering your questions as they arise
  • Finalizing the adoption

For Fathers
If 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.
