An adoption is an incredibly important event in the life of a child, and of an adoptive parent. The Law Office of Robert M. Valentine has aided families in adoption proceedings in which a relative or step-parent wishes to adopt, and it is truly one of the most rewarding aspects of Attorney Valentine's family law practice.  If you have questions about adopting a child to whom you are related you should contact Attorney Valentine for a free consultation.


Typically step-parent, grandparent or relative adoptions happen because a family decides it is in the child's best interest to be adopted.  Sometimes, however, tragedy strikes a family or the State of Florida seeks to terminate the parental rights of both parents.  In that event, it is crucial that you consult with an attorney so that your family can make informed decisions about adoption.
