Fast And Thorough Adoption Services In Hornell And Steuben County

Adopting a child is an exciting milestone – but one that also comes with immense legal considerations. The paperwork alone can be overwhelming. In contested cases, litigation may be necessary to terminate parental rights and clear the way for you to adopt. Both contested and uncontested cases require meticulous attention to detail.

Experienced Guidance Through This Important Life Step

At Donlon Law Offices in Hornell, New York, we offer comprehensive legal services for those pursuing adoption in Steuben, Allegany, or Livingston Counties. We consider it a privilege to help families through this momentous step in life! Drawing on more than 18 years of family law experience, our attorney and staff can work with you on any type of adoption, including:


  • Agency adoptions, foster care children
  • Stepparent/family member adoptions
  • Private consent adoptions
  • Contested cases


While many adoptions are straightforward, others may require additional legal steps – for example, obtaining the consent of a biological parent or terminating parental rights. We are well-equipped to handle even the most challenging adoption. An experienced and effective advocate in the courtroom, our lawyer, Jennifer Donlon, will work hard to make your dreams a reality and help make your family whole.
