Q: We have identified our birth family independently, and are having a difficult time finding an adoption attorney to handle the entire process and represent both us and the birth parents. Can you help?
A: If you have been looking for one attorney who will agree to simultaneously represent both yourselves and the birth parents, this is unethical, if not illegal. The birth parents need to be advised of their rights. Your attorney, in turn, should solely have your best interests in mind.
