Guiding You Through Hawaii’s Adoption Process
Adopting a child can be a wonderful experience- or it can be a stressful process filled with pitfalls and legal red tape. Hawaii’s family laws can be confusing, and a mistake in any part of the process can mean that you have to start back at square one.
At Ohana Legal, we are dedicated to making the adoption process as affordable and hassle-free as possible. Call us to schedule a free consultation to discuss your situation with a Hawaii adoption attorney today.
Preventing Problems with the Adoption
There are many steps we must take to ensure that the adoption is completed as smoothly as possible, including:
- Explain adoption laws as they apply to your situation;
- Ensure that the child meets Hawaii’s requirements to be adopted;
- Notify everyone with an interest in the child of the intent to adopt;
- Do Notice and Publications if necessary;
- Have home study completed by DHS or ask for waiver;
- Complete adoption paperwork properly.
Without an attorney, it is easy to make minor mistakes at each step of the process. Unfortunately, you may need to start over or face additional delays if that happens. At Ohana Legal, we will make sure that everything is done properly the first time around to speed up the process.
