Bringing your family together through the process of adoption should be a joyous time. While adoption is an extensive process involving significant legal documents, the end result is worth it. At the Monagan Law Firm, PC, we provide compassionate legal representation for parents in the adoption process.

From handling all the legal paperwork and explaining the adoption process, we offer personalized representation for all of our clients. Attorney Joanne P. Monagan is very knowledgeable in the area of adoption law and has more than 20 years of legal experience handling divorce and family law issues. She offers clients straightforward information and practical legal advice to achieve their goals.

Adoptions Cases We Handle

Ms. Monagan has worked with parents in a broad range of situations, including:

  • Second-parent adoptions and same-sex family law matters
  • Dependency adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Adoptions by grandparents

One of the first steps we take with adoption clients is explaining, in plain language, what the adoption process will entail and what aspects of the situation will be carefully reviewed by the court. Whether your case involves a parent who willingly is giving up his or her rights as a parent, or you are a same-sex couple looking to have the nonbiological parent adopt your child, we try to make this process as pain-free as possible.
