At Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP, we assist clients with all manner of family changes and transitions. These include adoptions and proceedings in the juvenile court system. Legal matters involving families require not just legal expertise, but sensitivity and responsiveness on the part of the attorneys involved. We make every effort to be readily available to our clients, to offer the support and guidance they need at every step of their legal process.
The path to adopting a child is a joyful one, but it is also laden with complex requirements, waiting, and questions. For parents making the choice to surrender a child for adoption, the process is a time of careful deliberation and mixed emotions as they consider this decision. Adoption is a life-changing process. Our goal is to make it a positive one for all involved, as well.
Our firm represents both adoptive parents and birth parents. We are aware that most people who are adopting a child, or surrendering a child for adoption, have not been through the process before. We take the time to explain clearly to our clients how the adoption process works, their obligations and rights, and what they may be able to expect. Our attorneys are ever-mindful of the needs of our clients, and offer them compassionate and supportive guidance as they travel the road to adoption.
We offer assistance with most types of adoption, including:
Laws governing crimes committed by juveniles, and procedures in juvenile court, can differ significantly from those in the adult system. In order for a child to receive proper representation in juvenile court, it is essential that he have an attorney familiar with the requirements of that system. We have experience dealing with the juvenile court. Our attorneys are committed to easing the process for children and families who find themselves facing a juvenile court proceeding. We listen to and address our clients' concerns, and explain their options in the following types of matters:
Whatever the circumstances, proceedings in juvenile court can be stressful and can have a negative impact on a child's future unless handled with skill and compassion. If your family is facing a juvenile court proceeding, we invite you to contact us for assistance.
