If you reached a parenting agreement with the child’s other parent outside of court, then the sole matter in a child custody modification will be to determine what arrangement will serve the best interests of the child. To have standing to sue for custody of the child, the grandparent must demonstrate the unfitness of the child’s parents or show neglect of the child. Grandparents may be granted visitation rights if they can show that the child’s parents are in an ongoing custody dispute and that visitation would serve the child’s best interests. The Raleigh child custody lawyers of Charles R. Ullman & Associates know the rights and protections that are built into our state’s child custody laws.

Alexander & Doyle, P.A.

The Cary family lawyers of Alexander & Doyle, PA most often assist in step-parent or grandparent adoptions, but find delight in creating brand new families as well. In North Carolina, adoption is strictly regulated by the General Statutes to advance the welfare of the child. Since the biological parents are relieved of their parental duties, a child cannot inherit property through intestate succession from his or her biological parents after adoption, and vice versa. Agency placements occur when the biological parents find adoptive parents for the child by going through a licensed adoption agency or official state bureau for adoption. In an agency placement, the child is legally “Surrendered” to the agency, which then assumes the parental role for the child while trying to find suitable adoptive parents for the child. A certified copy of the background information on the child’s health, social, educational, and genetic history, provided by his or her biological parents or by the adoption agency placing the child for adoption. Any court order or pleading regarding the child’s custody or visitation An affidavit accounting for any payment made in connection with the adoption. A document identifying any individual whose consent to the adoption is required and had not been obtained at the time the petition for adoption was filed. At the hearing, the court will make the final determination as to whether the adoption is in the best interest of the child. If the court should find that the adoption is in the best interests of the child, then the petition for adoption will be granted. If the petition for adoption is not opposed, then a hearing is not required, and the petition will be granted if the court finds the adoptive parents to be fit parents for the child. Cary adoption lawyers Andrea Nyren Doyle and Ann-Margaret Alexander have each served families and individuals for over 20 years to file a petition for adoption and assist with the overall NC adoption process.
