Regardless of your plans, adoption is a legal process required to solidify the societal arrangement by which a child born to one set of parents becomes the child of another parent or parents. Under Alabama adoption law, every adoptive parent must meet specific basic requirements, which include:
In addition, you may undergo a home study, in which a representative of the adoption agency and/or the state will meet with you at your home to gather information used to determine your suitability as adoptive parents. If necessary and appropriate, we can work to mitigate the impact of minor discrepancies or shortcomings in your life or background that could hurt your chances to be approved to adopt. If adoption is truly your desire, please take the time to talk to us before deciding you would not be eligible to adopt a child.
Eventually, your adoption will go to the county probate court where you live, such as the Madison County Probate Judge’s Office in Huntsville, to have it made legal and forever.
