Adopting a child can be an anxious time, from the bureaucratic hoops and

hurdles to unexpected developments. At Schwulst & Roseberry, P.C., we work to

anticipate problems and make sure that your adoption is accomplished as

smoothly and efficiently as possible.

proceedings for termination of parental rights. We represent parents and other

parties in family courts of McLean County and surrounding counties of central

Illinois. Contact us today for a free half-hour initial consultation.

Adoption and Termination of Parental Rights

Every situation is unique. Our knowledgeable attorneys have more than 53

years of combined experience in family law, including every type of adoption:

Stepparent adoption — We represent stepfathers or stepmothers in

formally adopting a child to "make it official" and to establish inheritance,

parenting authority, and other legal rights and obligations. This requires

terminating the natural parents' rights, which may be voluntary or

unopposed or which may involve contested proceedings.

Private or agency adoptions — We represent adoptive parents or birth

parents in these arrangements, from subsidizing the costs of prenatal care

to the terms of adoption (open or closed). We also handle surrogacy


Foreign adoptions — When adopting a child from Russia, Romania or

other countries, questions about the paperwork or legalities may surface

later. We do not facilitate foreign adoptions, but we provide "re-adoption"

under the laws of Illinois for an added layer of protection.

 Third-party adoptions — If a child has been orphaned, abandoned or

removed from the care of the natural parents, we can represent

grandparents, aunts/uncles, godparents, adult siblings or non-family

parties in formal custody and adoption proceedings.
