Adoptions and Paternity

We have handled various types of adoptions, including private adoptions, agency adoptions, foster adoptions, adoptions involving the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children, and the finalization of international adoptions. Our knowledge includes working through paternity questions in matters involving custody, visitation, and support. 

Custody and Child Support

Custody and child support are often the most difficult, emotional, and complex aspects of a divorce. We work diligently to protect the parental rights and the best interest of the child or children involved.

Guardian Ad Litem

During a divorce, paternity proceeding, grandparent visitation matter, juvenile delinquency or guardianship matter, a court may appoint a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) to represent and protect the best interests of a child or an incapacitated person, and provide the individual with services requested by the court, including – researching, examining, advocating, facilitating, and monitoring the child(ren)’s or incapacitated person’s situation on its own motion or a party to the case (or their attorney) may request that the court appoint a GAL.

Sadie Dillon-Baatz serves as a Guardian Ad Litem and has completed training that included specialized instruction and education on a variety of topics such as conducting home visits, investigating a child’s or an incapacitated individual’s situation, interviewing family members and service providers, and making reports with recommendations to the Court. This training allows her to represent the best interests of children and incapacitated individuals who are unable to represent themselves.
