At Stearns‑Montgomery & Proctor, uniting children with adoptive parents is one of the best parts of our job. Our family law attorneys have been making the dream of having a family come true for individuals and couples throughout Georgia since 1988. While you provide a stable, loving home your child needs to thrive, we take care of the legal requirements that must be addressed.
At Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor, we understand that adoption is a joyous occasion but one that can also be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. It is important that you get legal advice early in the adoption process to prevent any setbacks that could be unpleasant and demoralizing. Our Atlanta adoption attorneys will help guide you through the Georgia adoption process and help to make your journey more streamlined and cost-effective.
We handle a number of unique adoption situations, including:
- Stepparent adoptions
- Grandparent adoptions
- Relative adoptions
- State and private agency adoptions
- Interstate adoption
- Contested adoption
- Termination of parental rights (TPR)
- Involuntary termination of parental rights (TPR)
- Name changes
