Assisting With All Types Of Adoptions In Indiana

Adoption can be a joyous event, but it needs to be accomplished in the proper legal manner. At Ruppert & Schaefer, P.C., we can complete all the tasks necessary to ensure that all legal requirements are met in a timely and efficient manner.

Call us at 317-660-8150 in Indianapolis to schedule a consultation. We will explain the legal process, explore any complicating factors with you, and discuss how we can help you.

Our firm provides legal services in adoption matters involving:

  • Stepparent adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Birth adoptions
  • Grandparent adoptions
  • Same-sex couple adoptions
  • Litigation involving stepparent adoptions

Stepparent adoptions are common and generally occur after a divorce or a paternity determination. When the birth parent consents to adoption, our firm can help you complete the adoption process with little or no difficulty.

However, when the parent does not agree to the adoption, litigation can result. If a lawsuit is needed, we are on your side, and we will vigorously represent you and your loved ones.

International And Birth Adoptions

Our firm can also take all necessary steps to register your international adoption with Indiana authorities. At Ruppert & Schaefer, P.C., we do not arrange international or birth adoptions, but we can handle all  court work and documents for birth adoptions that are conducted by agreement.

At our firm, we believe that the creation of strong families can benefit our community. We will work to facilitate your adoption and protect your parental rights. Members of our LGBTQ+ community are welcome.
