Indiana Adoption Laws

Adoption In Indiana

All children deserve to grow up in a loving household with loving parents. Unfortunately, far too many children never get that chance. Many children are abandoned, abused, neglected, or orphaned. Many never know the love of a parent. Thankfully, there are people who want to fill that void. Many do that through adoption.

Adoption in Indiana is a legal procedure within Indiana adoption laws that allows a competent adult to assume responsibility for a minor child as if they were the natural parent of the child. Once the adoption is granted, the legal result is permanent and complete. In the eyes of the law, the adopted child has all the rights and entitlements as any naturally born child of a parent.

At McNevin & Schiff we have many years of experience helping our clients through the adoption process. The procedure is relatively inexpensive, quick and easy. If you have a child you want to adopt, give us a call, we will be happy to help you in your effort to provide a better life for a child who needs you.

Under Indiana adoption laws adoption entails filing a petition with the Probate Court, having a guardian ad litem appointed for the child, an inspection of the petitioner's home and an interview with the family, a report to the Court, a brief hearing and a Decree of Adoption signed by the Judge.
