Adoption is a wonderful option for expanding your family, but the laws governing the process can be quite complex. Susan Mackenzie’s knowledge of Tennessee adoption law will help ensure that your adoption proceeds smoothly.
An adoption attorney will provide an unbiased explanation of adoption methods and resources and help you develop a legally secure plan tailored to your and the child’s needs; explain your rights and the adoption laws in Tennessee or refer you to adoption attorneys who practice in other states or internationally; assess the risks involved, including determining what costs are legally permissible and ensuring that the birth parents’ rights are legally terminated before placement is finalized.
Ms. Mackenzie works with local adoption agencies and adoption social workers to provide clients with the necessary support to finalize the adoption. She also represents birth mothers who have made the decision to give their child a chance at a better life through adoption.
Ms. Mackenzie is approved to represent parents adopting children in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services and is on their approved list of adoption attorneys.
