Adoption

Grandparent, step-parent, single-parent, and traditional adoptions are all services we are experienced in providing exceptionally well.

A parent is subject to having his or her rights terminated in Arkansas if there is no significant contact or support for the child from that parent for a period of one year.

Some cases are complicated and some aren’t. Either way, there can be pitfalls, and our Lion Lawyers are there to guide you through the system.
