Here’s Why It Is Important to Consult an Adoption Attorney in Atlanta

Published

on

For any parent, adopting a child remains a life-changing decision. It is all about giving legal rights as well as responsibilities of parenthood to another individual and this process can take months, sometimes even years.  The entire process is about constitutional rights to parent a child, and it requires critical care to ensure there isn’t any form of error. In addition, since it is about taking up the responsibility of a child, it involves the government as well, who wants to ensure that the people considering adopting can provide the best environment for the child to grow.

As such, the entire process is a slow one, and having legal representation is something that will be quite helpful at every step. Consulting an adoption attorney in Atlanta is highly important. You will learn more about things like how much is adoption and the details that go into it.

Here are some of the reasons why it will prove to be a good decision to visit one.

Get a Better Insight into the Adoption Process

You need to understand that adoption is a process. It isn’t just about finding someone who’s willing to give up his or her child for adoption and simply signing a paper to complete the process. No, you need an attorney who would be willing to explain the entire process and exactly why it is important to follow each process in the right manner. Once you know the bigger picture, you will be ready to push yourself through the legal procedures and be ready for any complications along the way (although this is rare).

Make You Understand the Licensing Requirements Process

You need to understand that adoption involves various processes and can consist of numerous steps, including the submission of an application to the court, submitting valid information to the court, going through adoption training and orientation, and more. When you consult experts, such as Tom Tebeau you will need to supply the attorney’s with important information such as:

  • Current financial position
  • Moral history
  • Social history and references
  • Criminal history
  • Past court actions in relation to child abuse
  • Mental and physical health
  • Other relevant information

Know that when you comply with the gathering of this information, at every step, the advice and help of an experienced attorney is invaluable! At any time, if there are any kind of complications, this will slow down the entire process, but an adoption lawyer will be able to keep the process moving on the right track.

Get the Help You Need in Court

In most cases, complications could end up taking you into court. If you go to court, then legal representation is highly important. At such times, having an attorney beside you will make the sessions in court easier, and of course in your favor. It will increase the chances of you having a favorable and better outcome.

Things to Consider Before You Decide to Choose an Adoption Attorney

Before you choose an attorney, you have to consider some important things. Some of them include:

Question Them Freely

It is important that you know more about your adoption attorney’s prior experience, and they should be able to give you more insight. You may take your time to ask them any relevant questions. Hence, you should freely ask them about the type of adoption you wish to choose. For example, you should know there are specific intercountry adoptions, domestic interstate adoptions, working with singles and more. In addition, you should ask the lawyers about the process they follow. It is important that you meet a knowledgeable lawyer and one who is up-to-date with the adoption process.

The Costs

You may not think about this, but you have to evaluate the costs of adoption as well. As you choose your adoption attorney, you have to know that they should be able to guide you well on the adoption fees. You may not have an idea on what is legal, and what to pay to whom. In addition, you should find out whether they have a consultation fee, a set rate, or any such details. You should ask them an estimate of the adoption budget before you begin with the process and be sure of all legal costs.

Do They Have Prior Experience?

You should ask them whether they have prior experience with adoptions (whether it’s working with singles, domestic interstate or specific intercountry adoption). Get to know how many they did recently and how they manage the adoption processes. They should have enough knowledge of the different types of adoptions and guide you on the one planning to process.

Keep in mind that you will have to work with many people throughout the adoption process. However, working with an attorney is a great idea because you will also learn about the Georgia child support laws. Consider your attorney as a legal guide, and trust their guidance and expertise at every stage.

Blacklite District Has A New Single Titled “Gotta Get Outta Here”

Published

on

Blacklite District, the musical alias  of the South Dakota based singer/songwriter Kyle Pfeiffer, is set to release his new full length album, 1990, on December 31 through Pfeiffer’s own AK19 label. The 10-track LP was produced by Brett Hestla (Creed, Dark New Day) in Nashville, TN, and takes the listener on a vulnerable journey through Blacklite District’s struggle with drug addiction, a broken hip, and childhood trauma.

“As soon as I got clean and started thinking clearly, I knew I wanted Brett Hestla to produce this album”, Pfeiffer said over the holidays from his hometown of Spearfish, SD. “After playing guitar in my recliner for three months because of my broken hip, the music kind of naturally started getting heavier and heavier and it felt right to take things full circle”.

Fans of Blacklite District have already gotten a taste of 1990 with the release of “Gotta Get Outta Here”, and “Clear Skies” as singles. The two videos combined have already racked up over half a million views on YouTube, and fans have been letting their approval of the hard rock driven songs be known on social media. “This song is legendary!”, one fan says on YouTube.

“The response from my fans always lets me know if I’m on the right path”, explains Pfeiffer, “because in my world, it’s all about the song, not the genre”.

The lead single from 1990, Gotta Get Outta Here, recently became Pfeiffer’s highest charting song to date as it hit #12 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator chart, the week of December 18. The future looks bright for the South Dakota based rocker, and he has his eyes set on the road. “Getting back out onstage and playing these songs live for the first time is something I think about every day. It’s in my blood. It’s who I am.”

Rounding out Blacklite District’s touring lineup is videographer, tour manager, and long time friend Clinton Cunanan on bass (Clinton also fronts his own group, Another Lost Year), and Alex Hilton on drums. Pfeiffer says “these guys have absolutely killed it for me, and you can see it in the videos. The vibe was totally right when we started playing.” If you have not already, be sure to check out the latest single “Gotta Get Outta Here”.
