Adoption and Openness Lawyer

Adoption allows you to become the legal parent of a child and can be incredibly meaningful to your family. Adoption proceedings require a close attention to detail and an understanding of the legal process.

Openness involves the contact between a child and a biological parent or someone else they were close to before adoption. Openness can be important for children as it offers them a connection to their identity.

Emily offers advice and representation throughout adoption and openness proceedings and regularly does so through her private practice and as a panel member for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer.
