Parents To Be
One in five couples of childbearing age encounter problems trying to conceive a baby.  Many of these people experience years of expensive, frustrating, and even humiliating medical testing just to experience the joy of being a parent.  All too often their efforts to conceive ultimately end in failure. Their only alternative is to consider adoption.

Unfortunately, as the numbers of infertile couples desiring children have increased, the number of babies available for adoption have dramatically decreased.  Nowadays, the number of available babies has become limited for a variety of reasons.  In days gone by, many more babies were available as the result of the social stigma attached to unwed mothers who chose to put their baby up for adoption, rather than face public scorn. Today, that stigma has all but disappeared.  In addition, single parenting has become a widely acceptable option throughout our society.  Years ago, 60-70% of unwed mothers chose to put their child up for adoption. Today, even though abortion has become legal, only one in three unmarried women choose that option.  The remainder choose to become single parents instead.

There are also many occurrences where people who can conceive or who might already have children may wish to adopt a child for any number of reasons.

Basic Types of Adoption
The adoption of a child is the most important legal proceeding in which a person can ever engage.  As such, proper legal advice is essential.  This is true no matter which type of adoption is being pursued. The Law Offices of David P. Ginzberg
can properly advise you regarding all aspects of adoption.  Call us today,  24/7  Toll-Free: 1-800-611-0142 or send an e-mail now.

The basic types of adoption are (1) domestic agency adoption, (2) domestic independent (non-agency) adoption, and (3) inter-country adoption. Within domestic agency adoptions, the subcategories are public agency adoption and private agency adoption. While inter-country adoption can be either agency adoption or independent adoption, it is useful to keep it as a separate category since it is unique in many ways.

When children of another country are adopted by citizens of the United States, the controlling law is the law of the child's country of origin. Normally, the adoptive parents will receive a final decree of adoption granted in the foreign country by the court or other authority which grants such decrees under the foreign country's laws. A few countries have systems which confer legal authority on the adoptive parents to finalize the adoption in the courts or the home country of the adoptive parents.

In either of the above scenarios, the action by the foreign country, which results in making the adoptive parents the legal parents of the child, does not serve to make the child a U.S. citizen. Consequently, a visa must be obtained for the child to enter the United States. In addition, the child must go through the naturalization process in order to become a U.S. Citizen.

From a legal point of view, every case must be either an agency adoption or an independent (non-agency) adoption. What makes a case one or the other is the way in which the parental rights pass from the birth parents to the adoptive parents. In an agency case, there are two steps. First, the birth parents' rights are relinquished to an agency. Second, the agency consents to an adoption by a particular adoptive parent or parents. In an independent adoption, there is only one step. The birth parents give consent directly to a particular adoptive parent or parents.
