Virginia Beach Adoptions Lawyer


As you make the decision to expand your family through adoption, I am prepared to walk beside you through the process, clearing the legal road. I am honored to have been part of the lives of the families I have helped adopt.

At The Law Office of Elizabeth K. Barnes, I understand that not all adoptions are the same and the issues surrounding different adoptions vary widely.

I handle cases of stepparent adoption, parental placement adoption, close-relative adoptions and adult adoptions. Each of these situations is impacted by unique factors, and it is important that you seek the aid of a skilled adoption lawyer to ensure that the process is completed as seamlessly as possible.

Norfolk Step-Parent Adoption Attorney

If you are a parent wishing to legally adopt your spouse's child or children to whom you have become like a parent, the process can seem daunting and confusing. I am prepared to guide you through the process of acquiring the legal documents needed and filing for parental rights.

In these situations, it is not uncommon to experience push-back from the child's biological parent, who may or may not have been present for much or any of the child's life. I will work to help you overcome the legal barriers and reach a resolution that is in the child's or children's best interests.
