Adopting children in North Dakota

Every North Dakota family who decides to go through with an adoption will have its own reasons for doing so. Regardless how they decided to bring a new child into their family, though, adoption is beautiful. A new child will bring new joy, new adventure and a lifetime of new experiences.

At Melinda Weerts Law, we love the fact that we have helped so many North Dakota couples become parents for the first time through adoption. We also love it whenever we can add new richness to a family that already has children through a newly adopted child.

Niceties of adoption aside, assuming parental responsibilities for a child is not something to be taken lightly. Furthermore, North Dakota courts do not take adoption lightly either. For this reason, it is always a good idea for families to have a qualified and experience adoption attorney by their sides to assist in the adoption process, and to ensure that it runs smoothly and quickly.

Adoption is not only the process of bringing a new child into one's home. Adoption might also involve a child that is currently living with a family, and the family wants to formalize their care of the child. Indeed, adoptions might be carried out by stepparents, single parents, foster parents, co-habitating partners, grandparents and more.

At Melinda Weerts Law, PLLC, we are dedicated to serving the legal needs of North Dakota families. Should you have an adoption issue that you want to address, please read over our webpages on the topic to find additional information.

Commandments of Family Law

  1. The only truth your children need to know is that you both love them unconditionally, and that this isn't their fault.
  2. Take the high road — everyone wins when you do what's best for your kids.
  3. Negotiate but don't capitulate — if you are being pushed toward something detrimental for your children, stand your ground.
  4. You can only control yourself and how you respond. Don't engage.
  5. Do set up rules and responsibilities. Kids feel better when routine is continued.
  6. You are still their parent — don't be afraid to be one.
  7. Disneyland is in California, not in your home. Don't set up unreasonable expectations.
  8. It is not their job to take care of you. Repeat that to them. Often.
  9. Yelling is for sports — not court. Good lawyers strongly advocate without being disrespectful to opposing parties.
  10. Fair is a place you go to get cheese curds. Aside from that, nothing in life is fair.
