Deciding upon a Florida Adoption Attorney
At The Law Firm of Short & Setzer, P.A. we understand that adoption changes the lives of everyone involved: the adoptive parents, the birth mother and the adopted child. For most, adoption will be the biggest decision of their lives. It is for this reason we feel extremely privileged to be able to participate in this process of helping families grow through adoption. If you are looking to adopt, or are a birthparent making the decision to place your baby with an adoptive family, we can help.
If you are just starting to think about adoption, consider scheduling a Road to Adoption consultation with us. Adoption can be scary and fraught with pitfalls. There is a very real chance of losing a substantial amount of money and being emotionally torn apart. We offer an adoption consultation for a minimal fee for couples beginning their adoption journey to clear the way for a smooth adoption.
