If you are seeking to expand your family through adoption services, Cannon Law Office is here to assist you. Our team will minimize the stress and complicated processes that are typically associated with adoptions and are dedicated to protecting the right of you, your family, and your child.

While every child has a biological father, this does not necessarily make this father a legal father. Paternity is crucial, as it helps to establish a child’s legal paternal guardian. When parents are not married and the terms of paternity are not clearly established, our skilled office can assist you through the legal processes of establishing paternity, whether an unmarried couple wants to acknowledge paternity or if a father chooses to file for custody/visitation rights.

For some individuals or families, pursuing guardianship is an alternative to adoption. When a parent is unable to act as a sufficient guardian for a period of time, guardianship facilitates a means of a third party adult to care for a minor and make decisions regarding their welfare. When a parent becomes ill, leaves the home, or is incapacitated, guardianships may be appropriate. Unlike adoption, guardianships can be limited to a specific amount of time and provides an opportunity for parents to appoint an individual with the rights to make legal decisions for a child without losing parental rights.

Child custody cases can be one of the most daunting and emotionally taxing legal issues a parent may ever encounter. Not only is it often an overwhelming experience, but the emotional delicacy of this legal matter can make it difficult to navigate. The experienced team at Cannon Law Office can provide you with both the representation and support you deserve, working with you to develop a realistic parenting plan, the at-times complicated details of shared custody, and the other complicated idiosyncrasies that are so often involved in the custody arena.
