Step-Parent, Private and Gay Adoption
At The Law Office of Thomas J. MacLennan, we facilitate adoptions for families in a variety of situations in the Greater Toronto Area and throughout Ontario. We can advocate for you in any of the following types of adoptions:
- Step-parent adoption
- Gay adoption
- Private adoption
Obtaining Informed Consent During Adoption
During the adoption process, an experienced lawyer can help obtain all of the necessary informed consents. Typically, adoption involves at least one biological parent giving up her or his parental rights through written consent.
If a biological parent refuses to provide consent, our law firm can help you bring the case to court and have the stipulation overridden. At The Law Office of Thomas J. MacLennan, we can also help to arrange a home study for adoption if one is required.
