Adoption Attorneys

We represent both pregnant women making an adoption plan and families hoping to adopt. We are based in Orange County, California, but also service clients in the surrounding counties of San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino. We can work with clients anywhere in California, as well as facilitate adoptions in other states, if either the birth parent or an adopting parent resides in California.

Expectant Mothers Considering Adoption

For expectant mothers making an adoption plan, at no cost to you, we can help you:

1. Find the right adoptive family for your child
2. Arrange financial assistance for pregnancy related living expenses during and shortly after the pregnancy
3. Negotiate an open or closed adoption
4. Provide referrals for counseling, employment training, and health insurance

First, the compassionate adoption attorneys at Moore Law for Children can help you find the right family for your baby, one that you choose by looking at written and photo profiles, and if requested, in person meetings. Second, we will arrange both emotional and financial support during your pregnancy as well as after. We can connect you to local support groups and counseling. Third, after the birth, the amount of contact you have with the adoptive family is your decision. Finally, there is no cost to you: we do not charge expectant mothers for legal services.

What you are considering takes tremendous courage. The gift of life to a child, and the gift of a child to a family, are the most precious, honorable gifts. We are humbled by your choice, and we would be honored to assist you. We invite you to call or come in and meet with us.

Adopting Families

We assist families with step-parent adoptions, relative adoptions, foster parent adoptions, adult and baby adoptions. Families desiring to adopt can expect compassionate, competent, and ethical representation. Meldie Moore, the founder and director of Moore Law for Children, understands the anxiety and longing this process brings. She personally experienced both loss and success with adoption. Monica Schutt, associate attorney, was adopted herself and is passionate about this area of law. At Moore Law for Children we want to help you by handling all of the legal obligations, so you can focus on your family. We work with trusted professionals throughout Southern California who can assist you with the non-legal aspects of your adoption journey from beginning to end. We can connect you to resources for a number of services including but not limited to:

  • Profile Book Design
  • Post-Placement Counseling
  • Adoption Loans and Grants
  • Matching

We would like to answer your questions. So, please call, and let us assist you on this life-changing journey. Our greatest joy is to help you achieve your dream of a child.
