Melissa B. Brisman, Esq., LLC provides legal assistance to single individuals and couples in New York and New Jersey who are interested in adoption. The law firm assists adoptive parents who are interested in either private placement or domestic private agency adoptions.
Private placement adoptions do not involve the services of an adoption agency. Instead, the adoptive parents and the birth parents may have a prior relationship or may have met through the internet or other media, and decide to move forward with an adoption arrangement. In contrast, domestic private agency adoptions are handled through an agency authorized by the state to act as an intermediary between the adoptive parents and the birth parents. Usually, an agency has adoptive parents already screened, approved and waiting to be matched with the appropriate birth parents. Private placement adoptions may be more time intensive for the parties involved, but can cost less than domestic private agency adoptions.
