Protecting your family
The Adoption Department at Waits, Brownlee & Hoop has handled in excess of 2,500 adoptions over 25 years. We have handled adoptions and guardianships in Missouri in over 25 counties and in Kansas. In addition to representing adoptive couples, we have represented birth parents in the consent process and served as Guardian Ad Litem for children in the process.
We have assisted in private adoptions, foster adoptions, agency adoptions as well as foreign, adult and step-parent adoptions. We have extensive experience in the process of termination of parental rights. We have also handled interstate adoptions involving obtaining Interstate Compact Approval.
Our attorneys and staff have a commitment to completing adoptions in a timely fashion and understand the urgency of all issues related to the adoption process. Our attorneys and staff bring over 60 years of experience to the paperwork and process of adoption.
