Adoption can be a wonderful experience for all involved. At Moyer Law, PC, we know that the legal side of things can also be very stressful. Our lawyer can answer your questions and protect your rights during this tough time. Call our Rhode Island adoption lawyer today at (401) 461-7800 to discuss your personal situation and see how we can help.

Types of Adoption

Adoptions can be cooperative, contested or even “open.”  Our firm has effectively represented many couples, individuals, and step parents through the adoption precess. We spend time with each client, and offer counseling and advice based on each unique situation. Past clients have appreciated how much our adoption attorney listens. Attorney Moyer can effectively represent you with the following adoption issues:

  • Filing for an adoption
  • Contested adoptions
  • Open adoptions
  • Enforcement of open adoption agreements
  • Modification of open adoption agreements
  • Preventing the loss of parental rights

Reasons for Adoption in Rhode Island

The most common adoption in RI is cooperative in nature, where all parties agree on the results. There are several common grounds to grant a “contested” adoption in Rhode Island. Whether a parent is abusive, has abandoned a child, or has failed to pay meaningful support for a child for several months is relevant. Our RI adoption lawyer actively will actively include you in your case. You have the ability to participate as much or as little as you choose. If needed, we will diligently represent you at trial, or aggressively negotiate an agreement on your behalf. The ultimate decision of negotiating or making an agreement is always yours.

Adoption is a life changing event and should not be left to an inexperienced attorney. Attorney Moyer will fight for your best interest. Contact Attorney Don P. Moyer by email or call us at (401) 461-7800 to schedule an initial consultation.

    Attorney Don Moyer is an experienced, very professional divorce attorney. I'm an active duty military officer living overseas for the past 5 years. No RI attorney would take my case... Mr. Moyer knew the law and appropriate statutes and efficiently solved my jurisdictional challenges. He expertly handled my divorce and did a tremendous job preserving my assets.
