Adoption can be both a rewarding and frustrating. Individuals may choose to adopt for many different reasons. No matter the reason, Street and Shook can help.
North Carolina law allows any adult to adopt any other adult or child. It is necessary to know what the law requires before choosing to adopt. Adoptions are processed through the court system and the procedures required depend on the nature of the adoption. Adoption can have an effect on family unity, and can have far reaching effects on your estate plan. Navigating the adoption process without an attorney can be frustrating, and can often end up being more expensive than simply hiring a lawyer.
If you have decided to adopt, contact Street and Shook (704.864.8324) so that we can help answer questions that you might have about the process.
