Grandparent Adoptions

The long-term welfare of a child is understandably of concern to more than just the biological parents. Medical and psychological issues, legal trouble and tragedy can mean that biological parents are unable to care for your grandchildren. When a child's parents have become neglectful, addicted to drugs, incarcerated or died, it is possible for grandparents to step in and fulfill the role of parents legally, as well as emotionally.

Through grandparent adoption, the Law Offices of James O. Bass, P.C., can help you avoid potential custody problems. We want you to be able to continue to provide for the needs of children who can no longer depend on their birth parents for the necessities of life and a well-adjusted upbringing.

You can count on James to have your best interests at heart at all times. We listen to your goals, research every facet of your adoption case, advocate aggressively for you and deliver attentive personal service throughout an often complex and frustrating legal process.

Our law office serves all of Greater Atlanta, Woodstock and Canton, Georgia. We can expedite your grandparent adoption efficiently and effectively. Contact us today to arrange your initial consultation.

An Experienced, Compassionate Cherokee County Grandchild Adoptions Attorney

When a grandparent adoption is complete, we will help you obtain a new birth certificate that includes the new parent's name and the child's adopted name. We work hard to avoid the complications of medical insurance coverage, ensure the child's right to be "capable of inheriting from a stepparent as if born to that person" and proactively seek resolutions to a grandparent's potential custody dispute with relatives.
