Are you searching for an adoption attorney or adoption agency in Florida? If so, it’s important to know what to look for in an adoption professional.
Three Things To Look For in an Adoption Professional.
- Licensing. Unless it’s adoption by a close relative, only a licensed Florida attorney or a licensed Florida adoption agency can place a child for adoption in Florida. Always ask about licensing. Many organizations are operating illegally in Florida.
- Location. Where is the company located? Look at their website. Where is their office? Do they even have an office? You’ll always want to work with an adoption professional who has a physical office in Florida. If they don’t, then there’s a good chance that they are not licensed to operate in this state.
- Experience. You should always seek to work with an adoption professional who has extensive adoption experience and a positive track record in the adoption community. Make sure to do some research. Google the name of the attorney or executive director, make sure everything checks out before making the first call. If they’re an attorney, you should see a link to their profile with the Florida Bar Association pop up. How long have they been in business?
