Expanding Your Family Through Adoption
The decision to adopt and give a child a forever home is one that is made for a number of reasons. Whether because of infertility or simply a desire to become more than just a stepparent, adoption gives parents a way to strengthen their family bonds and foster a lasting relationship with a child who is not biologically their own.
At the Law Office of Michael Davidson, PLLC, we are honored to help individuals and couples in Kentucky navigate the adoption process in order to expand their family. Whether our clients are going through a domestic adoption or one that requires interactions with foreign governments, we handle the legalities of the process so that our clients can concentrate on preparing for the arrival of their new family member.
Handling Domestic And International Adoptions
Because we handle all forms of adoptions, including in-state, interstate and international adoptions, we know that the laws surrounding the adoption process can vary between different states and different countries. This can easily leave prospective parents feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, and in need of legal counsel.
At our law firm, we take the stress out of the adoption process by making sure you fully understand the law — whether it’s Kentucky law or the law of another country — and explaining how to navigate the process ahead.
When handling domestic adoptions, our attorneys make sure you are prepared for the process ahead by explaining all applicable laws and how the transfer of parental rights will work. We also prepare you for in-home visits and help you fill out any necessary legal documents that will finalize your adoption.
For international adoptions, our lawyers not only help you understand the variations in the law between other counties, but we help in negotiations with foreign agencies as well.
How Our Law Firm Can Help

We are with you every step of the process, making sure you understand your rights, the rights of the child’s birth parents and what you need to do to finalize your adoption.
