Foster Family Rights

Lawyers for Foster Family Rights in Henderson

Can a Foster Parent Fight for Custody?

Foster care arrangements are intended to be temporary—but do not always end up this way. In some cases, foster families may develop a bond with a child they care for and seek permanent custody. This form of adoption requires careful legal navigation, especially if it leads to conflicts with other parties, including the child's biological family.

If you are a foster parent seeking an adoption of a child in your care, then the legal advocates at Ford & Friedman are ready to assist you. Our trusted Henderson foster family lawyers have experience with a wide range of legal issues involving foster family rights and are ready to emphatically assert your role in a foster child's life both in and outside the courtroom.
