Types Of Adoption

No matter what type of adoption you are considering taking advantage of to grow your family, I can help ensure that you understand what to expect and that you are able to effectively navigate the process. I am with my clients every step of the way.

I help people through the following types of adoptions:

  • Stepparent/family adoptions – When a stepparent or other relative wishes to secure full parental rights, adoption can help those family members fulfill that desire.
  • Infant placement – I offer compassionate guidance to biological parents seeking to place an infant with an adoptive family.
  • Department of Human Services (DHS) adoptions - When a child is taken into custody due to neglect or abuse and the biological parent has failed to meet the requisite conditions for regaining custody of his or her child, the child is then placed for adoption.
  • International readoption – When parents have adopted a child abroad, they still need to go through the adoption process here in the United States. I can help ensure that all steps are accurately completed to protect your family from unnecessary hardships.

I am attorney Melisa Van Meter, I have spent my career focusing on family law and especially on children's issues. In 2000 I began exclusively working on adoption and guardianships. I am proud to be able to help bring families together through the successful navigation of the adoption process. I can help you grow your family, one miracle at a time.
