     Adoption & Family Law

Adoption can be a bewildering experience. Minnesota’s leading treatise on adoption opens with the statement, “Adoption is a complicated area of the law and legal errors can result in devastating consequences.” Amy M. Silberberg, Minnesota Adoption Law And Practice, First Edition (1999).

Our firm will guide you and your family through your adoption, making the process as smooth and brief as possible.

Our primary adoption attorney, Jeffrey W. Hane, understands agency adoption–he and his wife are adoptive parents through two separate agency adoptions. Further, we have experience in the full range of adoption scenarios:

  • Agency adoptions
  • Step-parent adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Confirmation proceedings (of foreign adoptions)
  • Terminations of parental rights
  • Relative adoptions
  • Contested adoptions (competing petitions)
  • ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act) and ICPC (Interstate Compact) issues

BSSM&A will work with the courts, social workers, agencies, and other key people to make your adoption a success. We can even provide representation in direct placements.

Adoption fees are based on our standard hourly rates. For subsidized adoptions, our firm is almost always able to work with families to stay with the subsidy guidelines and help you obtain your subsidy.

To learn more about adoption and services, call (800) 962-6281.

Serving families throughout the region since 1934.
