Woman and childAttorney Tara Tauber has extensive experience and knowledge regarding adoption. As an adoptive Mother herself, Tara understands first-hand the emotions that are involved in wanting to adopt a child, as well as the agonizing decisions that birth mothers make in relinquishing their parental rights. She provides a comfort level to her adoptive families that only an attorney who is also an adoptive parent can match.

There are many misconceptions about adoption, and Tauber Law Offices is happy to provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision, whether you are a birth parent or a prospective adoptive parent. Some common questions are:

  • How much does it cost to adopt a child?
  • Can I adopt a newborn?
  • How long does a birth mother have to change her mind?
  • How long does the process take?

Attorney Tara Tauber can answer all of these questions and more. As the adoption attorney for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Gary, Inc., Tara has handled numerous state-agency adoptions. Tara has also handled a substantial number of private adoptions, step parent adoptions, relative adoptions, same-sex adoptions and adoptions of foster children through the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). Her experience includes complex issues such as birth parents who are married but no longer in a relationship, birth parents who do not speak English, birth parents who are illegally residing in the United States, birth fathers who attempt to contest adoptions, and birth parents who reside in other countries while the babies were born in the United States.

As a person who struggled for years to become a mother, Attorney Tara Tauber provides prompt and efficient service to her adoptive families. She can assist you in obtaining a required home study, including a criminal background check. She provides comfort and strong support to adoptive parents during the adoption process. On average, once a child has been born, Attorney Tauber has been able to complete the adoption process for the adoptive family in under 90 days.
