Adoptions in Maryland

Many people may be involved in the adoption process, including the child’s biological parents, you and your family, and the child you are adopting. With numerous individuals having an interest in the adoption, the proceedings can be emotionally charged and stressful. At Rice Law, we are dedicated to working with you throughout the process to understand your concerns and help ease the stress.

In Maryland, there are three different types of adoptions:

  • Independent adoptions: These are filed by individuals, such as stepparents or co-parents

Each type of adoption has unique rules governing it that may require the guidance of a lawyer. With over decades of collective experience in family law, our knowledgeable Annapolis adoption attorneys understand the various types of circumstances and know how to approach your case.
