Adoption in Georgia

One thing to remember is that laws pertaining to adoption vary widely from State to State. I would never recomment an individual attempting to draft and file a Petition for Adoption themselves. It's a child. Every "T" must be crossed and every "I" dotted. Close enough is tragic in adoption law.

Georgia has a professional organization, The Georgia Council of Adoption Lawyers, which is made up of the most knowledgeable attorneys around who know and understand the law. If you live in Georgia, call the one closest to your town and give them a call. Gone are most of the "boutique" offices like mine - I only work in Adoption law, child guardianship and write wills. Find an attorney with a passion for children and you'll have made the right choice!
