We Hope To Help You Build Your Family

Growing a family is an exciting prospect. It can also be a legally strenuous, practically daunting process that can intimidate you. That’s why clients considering adoption turn to us.

At Thomas-McDonald Law Firm, P.A., we help clients in Miami and the surrounding area through all the ups and downs of adoption. We educate you on your adoption journey, set realistic expectations and advocate for your results.

There Are Several Adoption Scenarios

When people talk about adoptions, they often just think it’s a matter of filling out paperwork, meeting a child and going home. The process is very different from that perception, and in fact, there are many types of adoption:

  • Infant adoption: Either locally or interstate, pursuing an infant adoption is a competitive, challenging process.
  • Relative adoption: When a child is formally adopted by a relative such as a grandparent, stepparent or another relative.
  • International adoption: This process is one of the most challenging but is often a primary way for some families to grow.
  • Adult adoption: This process can formalize a relationship with someone you care about through adoption.

Our team is here to support you whatever the reasons or needs behind your adoption goals. Being a parent is about sharing your time, knowledge and life with another person, helping them to grow and growing yourself.

How We Support Surrogacy

Another option many choose to build their family is through surrogacy. Choosing a surrogate is a complex process, but with skilled representation, it can be very successful. As with any family law matter, our experienced attorneys can act as guides and advisors to you so you can confidently move forward.
