Hello everyone. I am new to the AFC forum group and am learning a lot from everyone!
My husband and I are finally getting serious about finding and agency and starting the adoption process. I get the impression through research that even when going through an agency, we should still retain an adoption lawyer. Should we reatin the lawyer, then look for an agency? This way we could ask the lawyer any questions about contracts, etc. that we might need help with when deciding on an agency. Or do most people wait to get the agency picked out first, then retain a lawyer?
Any help would be appreciated!
Also, if anyone has any references for attorneys or adoption agencies (domestic) in Wisconsin or Illinois, I would love to hear!
