Attorney Mooradian's client, a young girl from an African country, was recently adopted by her family members in the United States. The young girl came to the United States initially with her parents. It became clear, however, that her parents did not have the same resources to care for her in her native country as she would have here in the United States. The young girl wished to remain with her family here in the United States and to remain in public school here.
Attorney Mooradian met with the girl's family to find the best way to achieve their legal goals. The girl's sister and brother-in-law decided that they wished to adopt her. Attorney Mooradian completed all required documentation in the Worcester Probate and Family Court before attending a successful adoption hearing. The young girl will now have a path to citizenship.
