Adoptions and Guardianships
The Bethany Adoption Service, Inc. is a licensed agency in the State of Oklahoma. We assist birth mothers and adoptive parents, grandparents, foster parents, and stepparents in Oklahoma. We work with agencies, social workers, home study representatives, and doctors to achieve open or closed adoptions.
We often advise stepparents and grandparents who want to adopt the children in their care. Stepparent and grandparent adoptions are sometimes call adoption-terminations because the biological parents' rights must first be terminated for the stepparent or grandparent can adopt the child. These adoptions are appropriate in cases where the biological parent is not involved in the child's life and does not want to pay child support.
Guardianships involve court supervised management of the person and/or property of either a minor child, special needs child or an incapacitated adult. The law provides for specific procedures concerning this process, and our firm possesses the expertise to help clients with the requirements of guardianship laws.
