Open vs Closed Adoption

People often ask if Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., handle open adoptions or closed adoptions. Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., structures each adoption based upon the wishes of the birth parents and adoptive parents.

In our experience, the most important aspect of any open or closed adoption is being sure that the expectations of the degree of openness or confidentiality of the birth and adoptive parents match. Some people want a very open arrangement, including post-adoption visitation, and others want a more or completely closed adoption.

“One size does NOT fit all.” We are happy to speak with you by telephone, without cost or obligation, to answer questions about your particular wants and needs regarding the openness of your adoption.
