Established in 2010, we help facilitate your CPS adoption in Tempe and Phoenix.

Providing Private Legal Counsel to Successfully Adopt a Child From Foster Care

CPS adoptions refer to children who have been removed from their home and separated from their natural parents because of sexual abuse, physical abuse, severe neglect or other danger to the child's well-being. In most cases, the parental rights have already been terminated. Our role is to assist in filing the petition, arrange home studies and square up the paperwork to make the adoption process as efficient and stress-free as possible.

We help facilitate the adoption of CPS children out of foster care by:

  • Family members such as grandparents, aunts and uncles, or adult siblings
  • Foster parents who want to formally adopt a foster child
  • Couples outside the foster care system who are willing to adopt an older child or special needs child

The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) provides a list of eligible CPS attorneys in each county and pays those attorneys for their services and expenses through adoption subsidies. However, Attorney Shawnna Riggers, our firm’s founder, is not a state employee and the DES does not endorse her or any CPS lawyer.
