International Adoption is a challenging journey which requires families to follow international treaties, complex laws and rigid procedures. We are here to help you every step of the way. For two decades, our office has helped families adopt from over 70 countries. Today 85 countries have ratified the Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Cooperation with Respect to Intercountry Adoptions (convention xxxiii). The Council on Accreditation has certified Steffas & Associates, P.C. as an approved entity both Incoming and Outgoing adoptions. As an approved entity, we can assist families with their Hague adoptions and US citizenship for their children.
Domestic Adoption - Whether you are considering Adopting a child who is a relative or working with an adoption agency to find your child, or trying to decide between open and closed adoption, our experienced legal team will guide you through the adoption process. Our goal is to help families become stable and remain intact.
ARTS & Surrogacy - Whether you have decided to turn to assisted reproduction technologies to build your family, or you are acting as a gestational carrier or donor to help prospective parents build their family, Steffas & Associates, P.C. can help you determine the best way to achieve your goal, advise you on the laws in place, and draft or review contracts.
We are committed to helping families take care of their families - intra family adoptions. When parents cannot raise their children, frequently aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents come to the rescue. Even in domestic US adoptions, the greatest number of adoptions is intra family.
