For More Than 30 Years

Our Practice Is Limited to Adoption & Children’s Law

Adoptive Parents

If you are a prospective adoptive parent in South Carolina and are facing discouraging myths or unanswered questions surrounding the adoption process, attorney Ray Godwin can help. Perhaps you are seeking an alternative to an adoption agency or want to know more about starting the adoption process from someone who’s already been through it. As an adoptive parent and professional, Ray will dispel the myths that could be discouraging you from building your family through adoption.

Thanks to its role in his own life, Ray believes in the miracle of adoption. He began successfully building his family through adoption in the 1980s and has worked hard ever since to represent the interests of loving potential parents just like you.

A Commitment To Building Families

Our track record reveals more than 2,500 successful adoptions in over 30 years of service. It has been our honor and pleasure to serve prospective adoptive parents and birth mothers by educating them about the adoption process, debunking myths commonly associated with adoption, and efficiently executing all necessary legal procedures involved in the process. Adoption should ideally be a win-win situation for all parties: the adoptive parents, the birth mother, and the child.
