What happens after I give birth, if I change my mind about giving my baby up for adoption, and DCS gets involved and then I decide to put the baby up for adoption, can I still do it?
Indiana Adoption Attorney - Kirsh & Kirsh | Indiana's Top Adoption Attorneys

Unfortunately, probably not. Once the Department of Child Services gets involved, DCS will likely make all decisions regarding your baby. Rarely do those decisions include allowing you, as the birth mother, to direct who adopts the baby or even whether to place your baby for adoption. Your best bet if you think that DCS will get involved because you have used drugs during your pregnancy or have other open DCS cases, you should give lots of thought to what you believe is best for your baby and you. If you want DCS to place your baby in foster care while DCS provides services to you to enable DC ..read more

Answer: Whatever you prefer! We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, tailor each adoption to the needs of the birth parents and adoptive parents rather than making it a policy to handle all adoptions the same.

Why Do I Have To Fill Out a Background Form If I Give My Baby Up For Adoption?
Indiana Adoption Attorney - Kirsh & Kirsh | Indiana's Top Adoption Attorneys
by Cairs Admin
1M ago
Completing a background form serves three purposes. Firstly, it helps the national adoption agency, local adoption agency, or adoption attorney find the best family for your baby if you decide to put up your baby for adoption or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for the baby. For example, if a particular disease runs in your family, the adoption attorney or adoption agency would try to find a family who has the resources to provide for the child if the child develops that condition. Secondly, if you work with an experienced adoption law firm like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & K ..read more

What Is Open Adoption? What Does Open Adoption Look Like?
Indiana Adoption Attorney - Kirsh & Kirsh | Indiana's Top Adoption Attorneys
by Cairs Admin
2M ago
Open adoption is really a spectrum – at one end of the spectrum, adoptions are completely closed or confidential, meaning the exchange of no information. Neither the birth parents nor the adoptive parents know ANYTHING AT ALL about the other. On the other end of the spectrum is a completely open arrangement in which the parties know EVERYTHING about each other and plan to raise the adoptee together, also called “Cooperative Parenting.” In our vast experience of having arranged adoptions for nearly 40 years, we at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) h ..read more

I Am Afraid To Look Into Adoption. I Don’t Want My Child To Hate Me If I Give The Child Up For Adoption
Indiana Adoption Attorney - Kirsh & Kirsh | Indiana's Top Adoption Attorneys
by Cairs Admin
2M ago
No parent wants their child to hate them. However, some children (particularly during their teenaged years) hate their parents for all kinds of reasons, real and imagined. Therefore, no matter what decision a parent makes affecting their child, there is no guarantee that the child will not find fault with the parent’s action. Parents should not make decisions for their children based upon a hope that their children will like or approve of the decisions. Parents should make decisions based upon what the parent believes serves the child’s best interests. If a woman with an unplanned pregnancy or ..read more

I Did Not Expect To Get Pregnant. What Is The Current Status Of Indiana’s New Law Banning Most Abortions?
Indiana Adoption Attorney - Kirsh & Kirsh | Indiana's Top Adoption Attorneys
by Cairs Admin
3M ago
The short answer is that the new law, which was to take effect on September 15, 2022, has been put on hold. In other words, Indiana allows abortion to the same extent as prior to the enactment of the new abortion law. The Indiana Supreme Court will decide whether to allow the new law to go into effect sometime after it hears oral arguments in the case on January 19, 2023. If the Indiana Supreme Court strikes down the new law, it will likely give reasons, which may provide direction for the Indiana General Assembly to modify the new law to satisfy the concerns of the court.  Among other ch ..read more

As part of Senate Enrolled Act 2(ss), SEA 2(ss), enacted during the special session of the Indiana General Assembly during the summer of 2022, Indiana not only increased the amount of the credit Indiana taxpayers can claim against their Indiana State Income Taxes, but it may also enable some taxpayers to amend their tax returns filed after December 31, 2014, to claim the increased amount for each eligible child.
