How To Adopt A Child In Alabama
To qualify for adoption in Alabama, you must meet four criteria that includes:

Although some of these criteria are vague, the attorneys at The Rose Law Firm, LLC, have the skills and knowledge to prepare a strong case for our clients' candidacy. Our goals in all adoption cases are to provide exceptional client service and obtain favorable results as quickly as possible.
There are many options available for adopting a child in Alabama. This includes adopting a child from welfare agencies or state-run child services organizations, stepparent or family adoptions, as well adoptions between consenting adults.
In addition, our family law attorneys understand the complex rules for adopting a child who resides out of state. These adoptions are governed by the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC). Please speak to us today if you want to explore the adoption of a child residing outside the state.
