Same Sex Couple Adoptions

Are you a gay or lesbian couple
looking to adopt?

We're here to help you build the family you've dreamed of.

Are you a gay or lesbian couple looking to adopt?

Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., handles as many, if not more, gay and lesbian adoptions, than any other adoption law firm or adoption agency in Indiana, the Midwest, and possibly the country.  Annually, we help many gay and lesbian, married couples welcome newborn babies into their hearts and homes.  In fact, one of our attorneys, Grant Kirsh, was recently featured helping a gay couple adopt in Episode 6 of the Netflix Series, “Say I Do.”

You might be thinking that it is impossible to be successful adopting if you are a gay or lesbian couple.  This could not be further from the truth!  We often find that our gay and lesbian couples tend to get picked faster than many of our hetrosexual couples.  In fact, many expectant mothers whom we assist in finding loving, secure homes for their babies, specifically request gay or lesbian couples as adoptive parents.

If you are interested in learning more about our adoption program please contact us today for more information.


Frequently Asked Questions

Does it take longer to adopt if you are gay or lebian?

No. Most of our gay or lesbian couples get picked much sooner than our heterosexual couples.

Do you have to be married to adopt?

We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., prefer that couples – Gay, Lesbian, and Heterosexual – be married. While, legally, it may be possible in some states for unmarried individuals to adopt together, we would like the couples we represent to be married. However, we also represent single, Gay, Lesbian, and Heterosexual individuals interested in adopting.

Can a single, unmarried person adopt?

Yes. A person does not have to be married to adopt.

Do same sex adoption laws change by state?

Most states allow same-sex couples to adopt.

How do we become licensed to adopt?

To adopt, either as an individual or married couple, whether Gay, Lesbian, or Heterosexual, the prospective adoptive parents or parent must be approved for adoption by a licensed, child-placing (adoption agency). Some states allow licensed social workers to approve prospective adoptive parents for adoption.
