Starting Or Adding To Your Family Through Adoption

Welcoming a new member of the family into your home is a time filled with excitement and love. If you are adopting, planning to adopt or considering adoption, my firm, Kurt T. Richards, P.C., can help.

How Long Does Adoption Take?

The adoption process can generally take anywhere from four to nine months to complete. There are a series of documents that must be filed with New York family court and perhaps the surrogates courts. These forms are plentiful and packed with detailed legalese. To keep the process moving with as little stress and as much ease as possible, choose a lawyer who is thorough and detail-oriented.
