The Challenges Of Adoption

Even with landmark decisions in recent years, same-sex couples often face an uneven legal environment when seeking to adopt a child. Many countries, for example, still disqualify same-sex couples, making international adoption an impossibility.

For more than 30 years, attorney Jonathan Burris has fought to ensure members of the LGBTQA community have a strong voice in the courtroom. From the heartbreak of divorce to the joy of building a family, our firm is prepared to represent clients in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota.

A Variety Of Options

Whether you are seeking a closed or open adoption, there are numerous options based on your unique situation.

  • Second parent adoption
  • Foster care adoption
  • Infant adoption
  • Independent adoption
  • International adoption
