About Reno Adoption

Info from our Reno Adoption Attorney

Reno AdoptionThe Reno adoption lawyer at Eric A. Stovall, Ltd. understands that adoptions can be a very happy time, but that they can also be very stressful. As a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and by serving the adoption needs of families throughout Nevada, including in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Reno, Nevada, our Reno adoption attorney repeatedly applies the complex Nevada adoption laws to his clients’ cases.

Types of Adoption

Our Reno adoption attorney handles all types of adoption issues, including:

  • Agency adoption
  • Domestic adoption
  • Interstate adoption (ICPC)
  • International adoption
  • Independent adoption
  • Single parent adoption
  • Open adoption
  • Closed adoption
  • Stepparent adoption
  • Contested adoption
  • Grandparents custody rights, grandparent representation, grandparent visitation
  • Paternity
  • Surrogacy
  • Child Placement
  • Foster Parent Rights
  • Termination of Parental rights
  • Mediation

Since adoption involves the termination of parental rights of at least one parent, adoption can be a very personal issue and you need a caring attorney that empathizes with the emotion involved in the case and has the sensitivity to address your case accordingly. Adoptions fall into two main categories, including voluntary adoptions and involuntary adoptions. Voluntary adoptions are ones in which the biological parent(s) voluntarily give up their parental rights to the child(ren).

This then allows for a qualified adoptive parent to adopt the child. Alternatively, involuntary adoptions involve lawsuits that seek to involuntarily terminate the biological parent(s) rights to the child(ren), often for the safety of the child(ren).
