Child Adoptions



In today's world, adoptions have become a very common means to building a family but can have many potential pitfalls. In many cases, the joy and excitement surrounding the addition to a family can skew one's ability to objectively make decisions.

An adoption agency may not adequately represent your interests. With so much at risk, many people find it comforting to have an adoption lawyer involved in the entire adoption process. Adoption attorney Mike Watkins diligently represents his clients' interests in domestic adoptions and ensures all parties involved have a fair agreement. A well defined adoption arrangement will greatly improve the relationship between the adoptive parent(s) and the birth mother during the gestation time.

In every adoption, it is important to make sure all birth-parent(s) fully understand the scope of the adoption and how involved, if any, the birth-parent(s) may be in the child's future. Equally important, the birth-parent(s) must have a clearly defined "care" program during the gestation which may include the adoptive parent(s) paying for medical care, exams, room and board as well as many other birth-parent(s) expenses.
