What is the Adoption Process in Pennsylvania Part Two
Hi, my name is attorney Roy Galloway and I’m the owner of The Law firm of Roy Galloway LLC today I intend to speak about a topic that I get from clients and that is what is the adoption process in Pennsylvania? You can’t have an adoption without the termination of the parentï¿½s rights. So typically if a judge terminates another parents rights they are going to grant the adoption in the first place there the court will hold an adoption hearing some things to be mindful of there’s a process in which one can be adopted not just a child an adult can be adopted any adult over 18 years of age can adopt. In order to get an adoption you have to get a Pennsylvania criminal history check, you have to get an.
FBI background check, and you have to get the department of public welfare child abuse clearance. In some instances the court does require that you have a home study, a home study is where a social worker or professional agency appointed by the court comes into the home to determine whether or not the adopting parents are fit for adoption. They look at things like their financial situation the home environment, the religious background whether or not thereï¿½s other children, whether or not thereï¿½s any past abuse, drug abuse. So they are basically looking at the family biography typically adoption is a very happy process it is one of the things I enjoy most because adoption proceedings are a very happy.
Time allot of time loving families are opening their home or expanding their home giving a child who maybe perhaps doesn’t have parents, or perhaps the parents passed away, or maybe their parents are addicted to drugs and they are being neglected. I believe its a happy experience its something that I really enjoy I do unfortunately see both sides of it, there are times where parents may have their rights terminated because they were neglectful of their kids or they were incapacitated due to mental illness or something like that, that can be tough but typically they’re acting in the childï¿½s best interest. They don’t just easily strip parentï¿½s rights away from their children. They have to make a very compelling.
Story for the courts to do so. If youï¿½re going through and adoption, adoption can be a very stressful and complicated process, put the proven and experience attorneys at The Law Offices of Roy Galloway at your side. We can be reached at 7177373300. Thank you.
Rapists Get Custody Visitation Rights
After the tiny into bob dole out personality in the shana pre way who is a lawyer i wrote this plot for c_n_n_ dot com in in the blog she talks about our own personal experience with right uh. after she was raped she did become pregnant and she had decided to have the baby and she had a little girl that she logs is happy with her decision but even though she made that decision she has to deal with consequences if people don’t really think about.
And not consequences that the father of the child wants to have custody you know we honestly i did forget panel was blown away by so article and by the concept so and you know as she points out an article thirtyone u_s_ states allow a man who fathered through rape to get custody of his case right so that show.
Kanu uh. an issue an unexplained this puts and extra conundrum among women because then their those guys have leverage and they get into a situation where they say well you could testify against him but then i will would want visitation rights or maybe i dropped a visitation rights request if you don’t have so far power.
How does that stresses that under what muncy could be states possibly give visitation rights for the fathers who got the kids through rain i mean you are not a bad parent my god i can’t recall what would you do anything slightly wrong and i think it is a way.
You’re telling me and i know that’s an exaggeration but you know what’s really trying to find some way press them make their mom okay so this is missus knots and nonetheless the reform say no no it’s ok so cadre person but apparently thirty percent women choose to have the kid anyway which on blown away by can’t believe that that is an incredible statistic tunes different studies indicate that thirty percent of women decide to have the baby even if.
They were great but now it is very short standing up my insurance they wanna make that i understand that right but for that republicans they think no we don’t want you to have that choice a person an amendment for example and another two thousand nine uh. acted by the way paul ryan and eighteen cosponsored.
Would say that even in a case of rape and incest in fact the g_o_p_ platform the dangerous path two days ago says the u_n_ a case of rape and incest it doesn’t matter you loss happy kid that two thousand nine act makes it criminal if you have an abortion even if you are right the so that they know what a mess.
