The Law Office of Thomas Tebeau III is a full-service adoption law firm specializing in all aspects of Georgia Adoption Law. We are committed to providing the highest quality representation to prospective adoptive parents, adoptive children, birth parents, and agency representatives.

We handle adoptions of every type and stripe – including private agency adoptions, stepparent adoptions, relative adoptions, adoptions through state agencies and the Department of Family and Children Services, adult adoptions, independent adoptions, birth mother representation, domestication of foreign decrees of adoption, and termination of parental rights. We also handle cases involving interstate adoptions and the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children.

Georgia Adoption Law is a complex and high stakes area that should only be undertaken by an expert. There are many technical issues that are often overlooked by less experienced practitioners - including federal adoption assistance, obtaining state permission for a newborn child to move between states, and dealing with the rights of unwed fathers, to name a few. Because our practice focuses solely on adoption, wecan devote the necessary time and effort to ensure every requirement of the law is fulfilled.

Our clients comprise all parts of the adoption spectrum, including adoption agencies, military families,same-sex families,birth mothers, and more. We are proud to be one of the few adoption specialists who cover the entire state. Our clients come from every corner of the State of Georgia, from metro areas to the smallest counties in between.
