The South Carolina Adoption Process

Adoption in South Carolina is a complicated process that contains many different steps. Our attorneys use their insight into the nuances of adoption law to help our clients navigate the adoption process and avoid potential pitfalls that can derail the dream of adding children to their families. We take the time to fully explain what the adoption process will entail, and help you understand topics such as:

  • Eligibility requirements for adoption
  • Pre-placement investigations
  • Consent and relinquishment of parental rights
  • Judicial termination of parental rights
  • Adoption of children from the same sibling group
  • Relative adoptions
  • Special needs adoptions
  • Adoptions where one of the adoptive parents is in the military

Whether your specific situation involves these or any other issues, we will do everything in our power to help you accept a new family member into your home. All the while, we aim to get through the adoption process in as stress-free a manner as possible.
