Single-parent adoptions, once illegal in some states, are becoming more common in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. The change reflects a change in our society, as more adults choose to be unmarried but still want the experience of nurturing a human life.
At the Law Office of Stephen Ross, our attorneys provide compassionate, personalized and experienced representation for clients seeking single-parent adoptions in southeastern Pennsylvania. We offer flat fees so you will know your adoption costs upfront. Contact us to talk to an experienced and compassionate adoption lawyer about your case.
Challenges Facing Single Adoptive Parents in Pennsylvania
While single-parent adoptions are increasingly accepted, single women and men who choose to adopt still face many challenges. You may face questions from people who wonder if you will be able to raise a child alone. Birth mothers may prefer to place their child with married couples. Adoption agencies may place single-parent applicants at the bottom of their list for adoption opportunities.
Our lawyers can work with you to overcome these challenges and provide a loving home for a child. Current research indicates that children raised by single adoptive parents compare favorably with children adopted by married parents. A stable home environment is far more important in a child's success and development than whether he or she has two parents.
