As an adoption attorney, Keri D. Palacios goes through the Oklahoma adoption process regularly. The process of trying to gain the rights to a child, one that you love very much, can be an extremely stressful process.

So, if you are seeking to adopt in Oklahoma, you are going to need a qualified adoption attorney.
Reasons To Adopt
There are so many reasons why parents choose to adopt in Oklahoma, that we couldn’t name them all. The vast majority of adoptions are uncontested and result in success. When adoptions are contested by another parent, they can be more difficult. Most parents choose to adopt due to:
Inability to conceive on their own.
Step parents with a close relationship to the step child, in which it is in the best interest of the child to be adopted.
Parents who choose to adopt a child who has been neglected or subject to abuse.
A family member in need of parental care.
