Pensacola Adoption Court
Adoptions are a legal proceeding, and all adoptions in Pensacola are handled in the Florida court systems. Although, birth parents don’t normally have to appear in court. Your adoption attorney will take care of everything.
When choosing the right adoption attorney, wouldn’t you want to work with the most qualified person available? Madonna is one of a few board-certified adoption attorney in Florida. And her legal expertise is available to parents placing their child for adoption at no-cost.
Pensacola Foster Care
If you are considering foster care for your child, the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) is tasked with foster care of children in Florida. In Pensacola, Milton and the surrounding areas, they contract services for child welfare to FamiliesFirst Network
If your child has been removed from your care by DCF and placed in Foster Care, you do have options. Prior to your parental rights being terminated, you have the right to make a private adoption plan. This ensures that your child is removed from foster care and placed into the loving, adoptive family of your choice.
