There are many hurdles that can make the adoption process more difficult for both the adoptive parent(s) and the child. These can include:
In many cases, the adoption process moves fairly smoothly—especially if you’re working with an adoption agency to adopt a child whose biological parents have already relinquished custody. In some cases, however, you may find that there are hurdles to the adoption process: most notably, biological parents who have either a) not relinquished custody, or b) can not be found to relinquish custody. This can be particularly difficult if you’re attempting to legally adopt a child who has been abandoned into your care. In this case, having a lawyer on your side is one of the most effective ways to ensure that you are able to protect your child.
