Adoption Lawyers in Vancouver, WA

As complicated and challenging as adoption may seem, the excitement and eventual rewards more than make up for it. At Morse Bratt Andrews & Terry LLP, our lawyers provide personal, attentive legal service to guide adopting families through the complicated legal process of adoption and placement.

Adoptions Come in Many Forms - We Handle Them All

You don't have to be a birth parent to experience a genuine emotional parent-child bond. Adoptions are motivated by love that the adoptive parents feel toward the adoptive son or daughter. Adoption is usually just a way to make the law recognize an emotional relationship that has been strengthening for some time. At Morse Bratt Andrews & Terry LLP, we handle all forms of adoption, including:

  • Married Couple Adoptions of Newborn & Older Children
  • Stepparent Adoptions
  • Single Parent Adoptions
  • Adoption of Adults
  • Ratification of Foreign Adoptions
  • Other Family Adoption Situations
  • Pro Se Legal Services (Also Known as Unbundled Legal Services)

Your Lawyer Will Be in Touch

Adoption is a long process and, as that process unfolds, it is likely that very pressing questions and concerns will arise for you. At our firm, we place a very high premium on the value of communication between lawyers and clients.

When you call with a question, we will do everything we can to get one of our lawyers on the line to discuss the adoption's progress with you. Moreover, if none are available (it doesn't happen often), we promise to get back to you as soon as possible. We have heard too many clients complain about lawyers who don't answer phone calls to do otherwise.
