Juvenile Law
Contested Adoption Proceedings in Juvenile Court: A Review of the Statutes and Practical Pointers

Join adoption attorney Gary A. Debele as he discusses contested adoptions and the various issues attorneys and judges must consider in such matters. Mr. Debele will begin by reviewing the primary types of contested adoptions, including putative fathers objecting to adoption, foster parents or relatives seeking to adopt a foster child that the child protection agency has placed with another individual for adoption, and contested adoptions involving the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). With these primary types of contested adoptions established, Mr. Debele will then discuss the associated practical considerations including the risks, costs to the parties, resources, evidence to be admitted, as well as the importance of understanding the evidentiary and court rules. Mr. Debele will also provide detailed guidance regarding the statutory relative placement preference in adoptions.
