Legal Representation for Birth Parents

Tammi represents expectant/birth parents who are already working with an attorney or agency on an adoption plan. As an expectant or pregnant birth parent, you have the right to your own legal representation. Choosing to place your child for adoption is one of the most important decisions you will make in your entire life, and it is imperative that you understand your legal rights and the adoption paperwork that you will be signing.

As your attorney, Tammi can review and explain all of the legal documents, advise you on adoption related issues, assist with the negotiation of living expenses if applicable, and assist with negotiating a post-adoption contact agreement between you and the adoptive parents. She can also attend the consent signing to ensure that you are making your decision voluntarily and that you do not feel pressured by anyone. Typically, your legal fees are paid for by the prospective adoptive parents or the adoption agency, so there is no cost to you.
