Adoption of children is one of the most important steps you can take and you should carefully consider the attorney who will help you through this process.

In Louisiana there are three forms of adoption, intrafamily, private and agency. The intrafamily adoption is the most common type. And the most common type of intrafamily adoption is by a step parent. The private adoption is between two parties who either have know each other prior to the adoption process or have been brought together through some other means.  An agency adoption, as the name implies, is an adoption handled by a social service agency such as a church or adoption agency that specializes in such adoption.
