Pembroke Pines Adoption Attorney

Pembroke Pines is located in southern Broward County, FL. The city is 22 miles north of Miami. As of 2019, it had a projected population of over 173,000. The city is very close to the Florida Everglades offering great scenic views and a great place to spend the day. The city was first incorporated in January of 1960 and the name can be traced back to Sir Edward Reed, who was a member of Britain’s Parliament, and represented the county of Pembroke. The average high temperature in Pembroke Pines is 83 degrees Fahrenheit and averages over 66 inches of rain per year.

Skillfully Guiding

You Through the Adoption Process

An Experienced Florida Attorney Devoted to Family Law

Adoption is a blessing that can provide people with a wonderful addition to their family and children with a new environment to grow and prosper. However, it is essential to have an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer walking you through every aspect of the adoption process and minimize the chances of complications hindering the adoption process.

At the Law Offices of John Elias, our practice has been devoted entirely to family law for over 30 Years. In that time, I have helped many Florida families successfully adopt children. Contact me at 305-558-4933 or 954-270-6532 to receive and upfront and honest assessment of your case. I have offices in both Miami Lakes and Pembroke Pines.

Uncontested Adoptions

Uncontested adoptions occur when the birth parents of the child do not object to you adopting their child or children and are willing to sign a consent form. 

Many times, adoptive parents are birth relatives (grandparents, aunts, uncles) or step-parents who want a larger role in providing for the child or children’s well-being. Other times, adoptive parents are individuals who are unable to give birth to children of their own. In either situation, I assist adopting parents in properly completing all legal requirements. 

Contested Adoptions

If the birth parent, or parents, of the child or children cannot be located or are unwilling to provide consent for the adoption, I will assist you in obtaining a termination of parental rights. Termination is warranted in situations where birth parents have abused, neglected or failed to provide for the basic needs of the child or children or where birth parents cannot be found. Contact me to schedule an appointment and discuss my adoption services.
