Local & International Adoption

Local and International Adoption is a rewarding aspect of my practice I have had personal experience with. My two daughters are adopted, so in addition to the numerous cases I have processed, I understand the very special concerns involved.

Adoption is the process by which a legal parent-child relationship is created between individuals not biologically parent and child.

Please contact my office for an appointment concerning your adoption. I have provided a link to a questionnaire that we may both find helpful for your initial interview. I look forward to helping you achieve the blessed addition to your family.

International Adoptions

Division of Family and Youth Services (DYFS)

Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)

Uncontested Step Parent Adoption

I have helped Alaskans adopt children from Russia.

I handle DYFS cases involving the adoption of children for children who have been in state custody. Fees for this service are deferred until the State pays.

I handle ICWA cases involving the adoption of Alaska Native children.

Additional fees may apply based on circumstances.
