Georgia Adoption Law
Claiborne & Surmay, P.C. is the most experienced firm in Georgia focusing on both adoption and assisted reproduction law.
If you are considering adoption, you need an experienced attorney to help you understand Georgia law and advise you on how to begin the adoption process. If you already have an adoption situation identified, we can provide fact specific legal information that will prepare you for your adoption.
If you are considering using assisted reproductive technologies to expand your family, we offer comprehensive consultations and services tailored to suit your needs. We have more than ten years of experience with gestational surrogacy work.
From our Atlanta & Savannah office, Claiborne & Surmay, P.C., takes an individualized approach to providing adoption advice and legal services. We understand that our clients come to us for a variety of reasons, sometimes after experiencing years of frustration with the natural reproductive process or the red tape of extended-family or foster child adoption. We know that no two adoptions are the same, because no two adopting families ever have exactly the same set of needs. Some adoptions, such as those involving interstate adoption laws can be very complicated. We are equipped to represent you through an interstate adoption by working with our colleagues in other states to ensure your case is handled with expertise and without unnecessary delay. Our three partners are fellows in the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, a national, invitation only organization comprised of experienced adoption lawyers from across the country.
We are a comprehensive adoption law firm
We invite you to contact us to see for yourself what a positive difference we can make in your adoption process. Our adoption lawyers are thoroughly familiar with Georgia adoption laws, as well as how the interstate compact on the placement of children (ICPC) affects interstate adoptions. We pride ourselves on being a progressive law firm, working with a diverse clientele including non-traditional families. We are happy to help interracial couples, single parents, gay or lesbian couples, and a wide variety of age ranges fulfill their dreams of building their families through assisted reproductive technologies and adoption. We evaluate cases and clients on an individual basis, free of arbitrary requirements.
When you are ready to discuss building your family through adoption, we are here to help you with all aspects of adoption. Our goals include:
•· Stabilizing existing or new family relationships
•· Preventing adoption disputes through risk analysis and creative planning
•· Promoting non-adversarial adoption dispute resolution whenever feasible
•· Educating clients and the community on options for building families
