Law Practice Dedicated Exclusively to Adoption and Family Planning
The Law Offices of Deborah E. Spivack Brings Families Together
Adoption is a beautiful way to grow your family and open your heart and
home to a child or children in need. For the past decade, I have dedicated
my career to assisting my clients in navigating the adoption process so
they can transition into family life with their new child with legal security
and peace of mind. I proudly serve clients throughout New Jersey, Philadelphia,
and Delaware. My commitment to clients has made me a trusted resource
for hundreds of families throughout the tri-state region who have valued
my passion in my work, personalized service, and fervent advocacy on their behalf.
Why work with an adoption attorney?
Adoption is a wonderful option for expanding your family, but the laws
governing the process can be complex and difficult to understand. When
you work with an attorney, you can be confident that your adoption process
will proceed as smoothly as possible. I can help you understand the laws
regarding adoption, as well as provide:
- An unbiased explanation of adoption methods
- Resources to help you develop a legally secure adoption plan
- Explanations of your rights and the adoption laws in your state or references
to an adoption attorney who practices in your state or internationally
- Assessment of the risks involved, including determining what costs are
- Methods to ensure that the birth parents' rights are legally terminated
prior to placement
- Review and negotiate adoption agency contracts to ensure that your interests
- Clarification of your options for post-placement arrangements, if any,
with birth parents
- Drafting or reviewing services for agreements to ensure your interests
and the interests of the child are served
As the hallmark of my practice, I offer professional, personalized, and
practical advice to my clients in addition to high quality legal services
both inside and outside of the courtroom. My family-empowerment approach
to practicing in adoption and assisted reproductive technology cases enables
clients to understand their choices and make decisions that are right
for them and their families at every stage of the process.
Some adoptions are more complicated than others. I am dedicated to strategizing
with my client families to find and implement solutions through careful
planning and consideration of all possible complications. I enjoy the
challenge of planning for complex adoption cases and overcoming hurdles
that clients may have in the adoption process. Together, we create a plan
to resolve complex legal issues involving interstate adoption placements,
contesting parties, and immigration issues in adoptions with international
components, as well as pursuing clients' rights for financial and
medical assistance through adoption subsidy.
I am a proud fellow of the
American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, which is an invitation-only organization with approximately 340 attorneys
throughout the United States who have demonstrated extensive experience
in adoption cases. I have been a frequent speaker at numerous professional
conferences and participated in committees to improve laws and adoption
practice. I work to provide prospective parents and birth parents with
trusted legal representation for their adoption cases. Having a practice
concentrated on adoption and family planning spanning 12 years, I bring
a level of insight, judgment and experience to each case that surpasses
the services offered by attorneys with a more generalized practice, including
family law practitioners.
