Foster-Parent Adoption Lawyers Serving Berks, Montgomery, and Chester County Pa.
If you are a foster parent, you have already helped a child who may have been abused or neglected. Many foster parents choose to take this loving relationship a step further by adopting a child who has been living with them through foster care.
At the Law Office of Stephen Ross, our lawyers represent stepparents in Pottstown and the surrounding Tri-County area of Pennsylvania who wish to adopt their foster child. Since the adoptive child is already living with the foster parent, the adoption serves to make permanent a parent-child relationship that already exists. Contact us to talk to an experienced and compassionate attorney about foster-parent adoptions and other types of adoptions.
Representing Foster Parents Who Adopt
Our lawyers are here to guide you through the steps of adoption in Pennsylvania, including full and final termination of the biological parents' rights. Adoption transfers to you all of the rights and responsibilities afforded to natural parents, including the right to raise a child and make decisions about the child's education, religion, medical treatments and upbringing.
In addition, the county in which you live may give you many benefits until the child reaches the age of 18. If the child has special needs, this time period can be extended. The county can also help with medical insurance and reimburse you for the cost of the adoption.
