This book furnishes both general practitioners and experienced family law attorneys with a step-by-step practical guide to the successful completion of each type of adoption procedure. It also gives the practitioner the “heads-up” when an adoption proceeding may be beyond the scope of a novice and when more experienced adoption counsel should be consulted.
