Adoption

Working To Make an Adoption Your Success

Adopting a child should be one of the most enjoyable times in your life. Don’t let confusion about the legal process taint this joyous event by causing undue delay and heartache. Make sure to cover all your bases when seeking to adopt a child — whether an agency, stepparent, grandparent or foreign adoption.

At the law office of Gerard J. Pisanelli, I go the extra mile to make sure that your family becomes a reality. I understand the joy and stress associated with the adoption process because I personally handled the adoption of my two nieces from Colombia. Let me put my skills and talents to work in your adoption.

My firm is a local law firm, serving clients from offices in Poughkeepsie and Beacon, New York. To learn how to put my skills to work for you in your adoption, contact me today for a free consultation.

The adoption process can bring a family great joy, with the welcoming of a new individual into a family’s life. It can also bring confusion and frustration if not handled properly. As an attorney with over 30 years of experience, I can develop a game plan in any of the following:

  • Stepparent adoption – We help stepparents solidify the relationship that they have with their stepchildren by completing adoptions. We will help you with all aspects of your adoptions, including the home study and background check.
  • Foreign adoption – If you are adopting a child from another country, you will have to coordinate the adoption process between the United States and the foreign country. We will make sure your adoption is handled correctly, preventing untimely delays.
  • Agency adoption – We can assist families adopting a child through an adoption agency, working to ensure all aspects of your adoption are dealt with successfully.
  • Grandparent adoption – We help grandparents adopt grandchildren when parents are found to be unfit to parent or have died prematurely.
