Representing Birth Mothers and Birth Fathers and Families Looking to Adopt Newborns
Attorney Swain offers a comprehensive background in adoption law. In some situations, he helps birth parents find a loving family to adopt their newborn. He is also available to represent parents interested in adopting newborns, but he cannot ethically represent both sides in the same adoption proceeding.
Some clients meet with attorney Swain, after finding a match, whether on the Internet or through other sources. In this circumstance, he guides clients through the legal process to make sure every detail is covered. Part of his work includes helping clients determine whether to have an open or closed adoption. An open adoption could be a variety of arrangements, including a one-time meeting or a commitment to send the birth parents photos of their adopted child. An open adoption means sharing information but not joint parenting.
If the adoption is occurring over state lines, Mr. Swain has access to other members of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys to determine the legal requirements of the other state. The entire process can be handled in one state or both, depending on the states’ requirements. He works directly with the attorney in the other state, making sure every detail is covered.
A key part of attorney Swain’s work includes connecting birth mothers with loving families interested in adoption. Parents looking to adopt newborns are encouraged to create photo albums for birth parents to picture their family dynamics. If they so desire, birth parents have an opportunity to meet with several adoptive families after getting a better sense of the family from their photo album. This is often an ideal way for birth mothers and birth fathers to select the right family for their newborn.
