The Adoption Process in Georgia
While the specifics of the adoption process vary from state to state, there are many similarities that are intended to ensure that the child and the parents are ultimately set up for success. In Georgia, there are approximately seven steps to the formal adoption process. Once you have expressed your intention to adopt a child, you can expect to meet with several agencies, case managers, and evaluators to make sure that your home is an appropriate environment for a child, and you’ll discuss your options for being matched with a child in need of a home. To officially conclude the process, you’ll work with your adoption attorney to procure a judge’s signature that will finalize the adoption. While an adoption attorney is most useful during this final phase of the process, many parents find that working with an adoption lawyer throughout the entire process provides them with the reassurance and confidence they need during this exciting—and sometimes stressful—time.
