Adopting a child in North Dakota

North Dakota parents who bring a new child into their home through adoption are giving an incredible gift to the world. They are providing a loving home to a child who did not have one. Wouldn't be incredible if adoption were as simple as focusing on one's parenting skills and being the best provider possible for a child? While this is no small feat for any parent, the truth of the matter is that adoption can be a complicated legal process to navigate.

Fortunately, skilled adoption law firms like Melinda Weerts Law, PLLC, are available to help parents adopt their children and navigate the many legal issues surrounding the adoption quickly and efficiently. At Melinda Weerts Law, we are highly experienced in the realm of adoption law and it is always our utmost goal to make the adoption process as easy and stress-free as possible for both the parents and the adopted child.

There are many ways to adopt a child. Three of the most popular adoption strategies are:

-- To adopt from the foster care system

-- To adopt from a domestic agency

-- To use a lawyer to adopt a child independently.

Each of these adoption strategies comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages so regardless which adoption strategy future parents choose, it is wise to speak with an attorney.

Melinda Weerts Law is available to assist with issues relating to private adoption, adoptions by a grandparent or relative, adoptions by a foster parent, adoptions by a stepparent and more. Whether the family lives in Minnesota or North Dakota, our firm is available to speak with potential adoptive parents about their issues and inform them of their legal rights and options.

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.
