Tennessee Adoption Lawyer

Making a difference in the life of a child 

Every day, hundreds of needy and neglected children await the news they have long been dreaming of - they have been adopted by a loving family. It is, without question, one of the most noble and enriching decisions a potential parent can make. Of course, the process is not easy, and requires much legal paperwork and personal transparency. At the Law Office of David L. Scott, our Murfreesboro adoption attorney provides personal legal guidance to individuals and families during the adoption process. For almost two decades, we have handled the following adoption types including:

  • Stepparent
  • Single parent
  • Married couple
  • Grandparent
  • Domestic partner
  • Termination of parental rights proceedings
  • Abandonment proceedings

The adoption process can be complicated, or even contested 

Not every child available for adoption comes from a broken home or abandonment situation. Sometimes, it's as simple as a newly married couple wanting to bring a natural born son or daughter into the new relationship. It could also be a case of a big family wanting to blend their various elements into one big legal entity. These decisions can be met with disapproval, or outright rejection from parties involved - parents, guardians, or foster parents. Our Murfreesboro adoption attorney handles all types of adoption scenarios, including: 

·         Adoptions with parental consent

·         Adoptions without parental consent

·         Termination of parental rights

·         Establishment of parental rights

·         Altering or changing of parental rights

·         Adoptions by stepparents without opposition for the biological or legal parent

·         Adoptions by a stepparent with opposition from the biological or legal parent

·         Opposition from the state

Making the adoption process as easy as possible 

Our Murfreesboro adoption lawyer handles both simple and complex adoption cases. Whether all parties are in agreement, or an adoption is contested and requires the termination of parental rights, we can help. With more than 19 years of experience, we are committed to getting the best legal outcome for you. Call us in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at 615-896-7656, or contact us online today for a free case evaluation. We look forward to hearing from you.
