Helping Grandparents Understand Their Rights And Access To Grandchildren
It isn’t only biological parents who are concerned about children’s well-being. Grandparents and other relatives have concerns for children who may feel like their own. Who will provide for a child if the parents become incapacitated or pass away?
At the office of Ellen S. Mandell, we are committed to helping grandparents know their rights, understand the law and understand how they can share in the joy that is spending time with their grandchildren.
In the state of Ohio, a Kinship adoption is the practice of a relative taking legal custody to raise and care for a child. A grandparent or other relative who wishes to raise a child in need can legally adopt the child only after parental rights have been terminated. Our firm works with you through grandparent adoption, avoiding legal issues that could arise should you need to provide for a child or children who can no longer depend on the parents. Adoption is one avenue that can provide grandparents with the ability to make decisions regarding the child’s well-being, such as the child’s education and health care, including securing health care coverage and other benefits.
We know how important it is to you to keep the grandchild in the family. Skilled grandparent adoption lawyer and our founder Ellen S. Mandell will assist you at every stage in the adoption process.
The Process Of Adoption Can Be Complicated
Our firm works with you to get you through this process as painlessly and quickly as possible. Through our compassionate and tireless service, we will help you bring this child into your home as your own.
