Open vs Closed
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.
First in 2006 and then updated in 2014, Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., collaborated with Hall Render Killian Heath and Lyman to create guidelines for Indiana hospitals in handling adoptions at their hospitals. The Indiana Hospital Association disseminated the guidelines to their member hospital. Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., welcomes suggestions for additions and clarifications of these guidelines.
