My wife and I live in central FL (Lakeland) and are looking to adopt an infant/newborn. We are early inthe process and are a bit overwhelmed. It seems there are an abundance of agencies/attorneys to use. I am interested in using someone that is reputable, but honestly we don't have a ton of money to pay for an adoption. Does anyone have any recommendations of agencies or attorneys in the Central Florida area? Or anywhere in FL if its worth the drive. It seems like without a referral or recommendation from someone that deciding which route to go can be very daunting. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and thanks so much for your help!!

I am in the same situation and am looking for an attorney. I met a birth mother through another person and I live in Texas. I am in contact with her and we came to Florida to meet her this month. We thought we could use our attorney in Texas to prepare all of our paperwork but complete the adoption in Florida, but we were told today that we cannot use an attorney out of state. The fees for our lawyer in Texas were about 2500.00-3,000.00. Any attorney I called today was 9-10,000.00, which we do not have. Most of these lawyers were affiliated with agencies. I am looking for any referrals to family law attorneys that handle adoptions and can help us with the Interstate Compact paperwork as well, to make our experience go as smoothly as possible at a lower cost.
