Experienced Attorney Handling Salt Lake Area Adoptions

An adoption presents plenty of reasons to celebrate. The period leading up to adoption, however, can be nerve-wracking and confusing. At Stephen J. Buhler, Attorney at Law, in Salt Lake City, Utah, we assist people with a wide variety of adoptions, including:

  • Traditional agency adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Adult adoptions, which can include a biological parent reuniting with a son or daughter
  • Private adoptions, in which the adopting parents have located an agreeable birth mother on their own
  • Adopting children in foster care
  • Single-parent adoptions

Reduce Your Stress And Accelerate Results

I can answer the many questions that parents-to-be experience as they navigate the adoption process. As your attorney, I will help move the process through the legal system by ensuring that all documents are completed and all necessary information is presented.

A Note About Stepparent Adoptions

Stepparent adoptions require that the estranged biological parent's parental rights be relinquished before the adoption can proceed. In some cases, the estranged biological parent cannot be found. In other cases, the estranged parent has not paid child support and may be unfit to retain parental rights. And in other cases contacting the missing biological parent may not even be necessary. It is important to review your case with an experienced attorney.
