Transparent and Flexible Fee Structure
At Willick Law Group, we believe in transparency and ensuring our clients have a clear understanding of the costs involved in adoption services. Here is a breakdown of our fee structure:
Standard Hourly Rates
Our adoption services are billed based on our standard hourly rates. This means that you will be charged for the time our attorneys and legal professionals spend working on your adoption case.
It is important to note that additional costs may arise depending on the specific circumstances of your adoption case. For example, in surrogacy cases, there may be expenses associated with surrogacy contracts, including the surrogate’s living expenses. Each adoption case is unique, and the costs can vary based on factors such as the complexity of the case and any contested aspects.
Estimated Total Cost
While it is not typical for us to provide an estimated total cost upfront, once we have a clear understanding of the parameters of your case, we can sometimes provide cost projections. We strive to keep you informed about the potential costs as your adoption case progresses, ensuring there are no surprises along the way.
Comprehensive Legal Services For Adoption
We offer a range of services to provide comprehensive guidance and support throughout your adoption journey. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to ensuring a smooth and successful adoption process, addressing your specific needs and concerns.
From initial consultations to post-adoption support, we are here for you every step of the way.
In our initial consultation we assess your eligibility for adoption and provide a thorough explanation of the legal processes and requirements involved. Our team will address any questions or concerns you may have, ensuring that you feel informed and empowered throughout your adoption journey.
Adoption Planning and Strategy
Every adoption case is unique, and we recognize the importance of tailoring an adoption plan to your specific needs. Whether you are considering a domestic, international, step-parent, same-sex, or surrogacy adoption, our team will provide expert advice on the different types of adoption available to you.
Document Preparation and Filing
Navigating the paperwork involved in adoption can be overwhelming. Our skilled attorneys will assist you in preparing all the necessary legal documents, ensuring compliance with state and federal adoption laws. From reviewing and filing paperwork with the appropriate courts to handling documentation for international adoptions, we’re here to help.
In situations where birth parents and adoptive families need assistance with communication and negotiations, our team acts as a trusted liaison. We are committed to protecting the best interests of the adoptee throughout the adoption process, mediating any potential disputes or challenges that may arise.
Representation in Court
Should your adoption case require litigation, our experienced attorneys will provide strong advocacy in adoption proceedings before the trial court. We handle legal aspects of both contested and uncontested adoptions, presenting compelling evidence, making persuasive arguments, and defending your rights. If necessary, we can also pursue appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court and the Federal Appellate Courts.
Our commitment to you does not end with the finalization of the adoption. We provide comprehensive post-adoption support, assisting with the necessary legal procedures, finalizing documents, facilitating name changes, and updating birth certificates. We are here to offer guidance and support should any post-adoption issues or challenges arise.
Experience and Expertise You Can Trust
With over 80 years of combined experience in handling adoption cases, Willick Law Group brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to every adoption matter we undertake. Our team has dealt with adoption cases involving a wide range of scenarios, including step-parent adoptions (the most common), same-sex adoptions, surrogacy arrangements, interstate adoptions, international adoptions, and open adoptions.
Personalized Approach and Transparent Communication
At Willick Law Group, we pride ourselves on our client-centered approach. We follow a “true team” model, ensuring that you receive timely and comprehensive communication throughout the adoption process. We provide copies of all important correspondence and updates, keeping you fully informed.
