Adoption Subsidy Negotiation
Ensuring that children with mental, emotional, physical, or behavioral disabilities or who are otherwise hard to place are raised in loving and caring homes is an important priority of the federal and state government. If you are a family or single individual who plans to adopt and provide a loving home to a child with special needs, you may be entitled to receive financial and medical assistance in the form of adoption subsidy (also called adoption assistance).
The federal government has mandated that children with certain special needs receive funding and resources to encourage families to come forward to adopt these children without fear that they will lack the financial resources to care for these children properly. In some cases, therapy, developmental or treatment programs, counseling, and special education programs may be necessary to help ensure the child's well-being. Depending on the specific needs of your child, the programs may vary, but most subsidies provide several hundred dollars in incremental benefits to assist you and your family. Subsidies are available through the federal and state systems to broad number of children. My firm can help you determine whether your child is eligible for financial help in your adoption and can pursue your rights within the Social Security Administration or the state government process.
At the Law Offices of Deborah E. Spivack, I have experience determining eligibility for adoption subsidy, pursuing such entitlement, negotiating for my clients' rights, and litigating the law in administrative, trial and appellate courts. If you want to learn more about eligibility, do not hesitate to work with my firm.
