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.
