At Minella Law Group we understand the joy and complexity of building families through adoption. Our agency adoption services are designed to guide you through every step of the adoption process with compassion, expertise, and personalized attention. 

While we do not handle the placement of a child with a family, our experienced San Diego adoption attorneys will work with you to assist with the legal part of the agency adoption.

Adoptive Parent Representation: We represent adoptive parents throughout the agency adoption process, providing legal guidance, representation in court proceedings, and assistance with paperwork and documentation. Most agencies do not have an on staff attorney and will refer you to an outside adoption attorney such as us to do all the legal paperwork to finalize the adoption.
Adoptive Parent Counseling and Support: We offer counseling and support services to adoptive parents considering adoption, helping them explore their options, understand their rights, and make informed decisions about their child's future.
Agency Coordination: We work closely with adoption agencies to facilitate the adoption process, ensuring compliance with state laws and regulations and advocating for the best interests of our clients.
Post-Adoption Legal Support: Our services extend beyond the adoption finalization. We provide post-adoption legal support, including assistance with birth certificate changes, name changes, and other legal matters related to the adoption.
