Looking to adopt your step-child?

Congratulations! You are beginning an amazing journey and I would be honored to be your guide.

You may be recently married and are now considering adopting your new spouse's child. What an exciting time!

You are certainly at the right place.

I have been helping adopting step-parents throughout New Jersey with the adoption of their stepchildren for over 30 years.

Thirty years ago, when I worked for a NJ Family Court Judge, part of my job was to review all of the papers filed in every adoption case in the county. My judge relied upon me to make sure that the attorneys were properly preparing their clients' adoptions.

As a result of that intensive experience processing adoptions I became very familiar with the step-parent adoption process.

I've also "been there myself" personally as a step-parent.

My professional experience with step-parent adoptions, together with my personal experience as a step-father myself, puts me in a uniquely valueable place to understand what you are trying to achieve, and to help you navigate the adoption system as easily and as inexpensively as possible.

I would be pleased to discuss with you how I can help you with the adoption of your step child.

Please feel free to give me a call at 732-845-9010 or send me an email. If I miss your call or email, I'll get back to you right away.

I look forward to helping in any way that I can."
