Completing Your Family Through Adoption

Adoption can be a beautiful thing. Many California families are made whole through adoption, and the Law Office of Michael L. Seidman looks forward to making this happen for you. Adopting a child is not without its complications, so the counsel of an experienced attorney is in your best interest.

If you are a stepparent or other nonbiological family member, however, there is legal complexity that must be overcome before the adoption can take place. With more than 35 years of experience resolving these and other California family law issues, we can get the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed so you can move on.

Where Is The Other Parent?

Not sure? This could bode well for you. If the child’s other biological parent is nowhere to be found or has abandoned his or her parental responsibilities, we can help you pursue proceedings to terminate parental rights.

If the child’s other parent is still around, this could create significant complications. Our attorneys can help you determine the best course of action. You can rely on us for an honest assessment of your situation. We may not tell you what you want to hear, but we will tell you what you need to know.
