Who Benefits from Adoption and How?
By working with an experienced lawyer, you can make sure you avoid legal problems and comply with all the statutory requirements involved with adoption in White Plains and throughout NY State. Adoption benefits a number of parties.
When a birth parent is a young woman who is still in high school or college, the unexpected news of pregnancy sometimes means the end of education or career goals. Especially when the mother’s parents are unwilling to help support the pregnancy and childbirth, young mothers may not have the financial means of providing for a child. An unplanned pregnancy can result in enormous stress. However, adoption is often a win-win solution for all parties involved. Married couples with goals to extend their families through childbirth sometimes encounter fertility problems. Infertility treatments are expensive and not always a healthy alternative for certain women, who can experience extreme physical and emotional changes. Not all women can become pregnant through assisted reproductive technology (ART), such as in vitro fertilization. For other women, pregnancy creates health risks. Adoption may be a much better solution. By adopting, couples can satisfy their goals to have a child and also give their adopted child a good home. Adopted children can gain a sense of stability and feeling of belonging. They can have normal lives with parents who love them. Through New York Domestic Relations Law (DRL) on the Effects of Adoption, adopted children also acquire inheritance rights the same as if they were born to the parents who adopt them.
