If you are considering a private adoption through either an agency or if you are a relative of the child, such as an adult sibling, aunt, uncle, or grandparent, the state of Arizona does not require you to be certified (as it does with a DCS adoption). However, prospective private adoptive parents do still need to follow certain steps to be approved by the court.

In order to ensure your adoption process is completed in a timely and legal manner, contact Joyce & Dubin, PLLC to speak about your private adoption with one of our experienced attorneys today.
