ALCNOVA is not a child-placing agency and does not make child-placement or child-matching decisions in any type of adoption. While ALCNOVA may assist clients in selecting a reputable child-placing agency that best suits their adoption needs, the firm is not affiliated with any child-placing agency and does not maintain any agreements, formal or informal, to refer clients to any particular child-placing agency.
No two legal matters are the same. Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. Previous case results do not guarantee or predict similar results in any case undertaken by ALCNOVA. While ALCNOVA makes every effort on behalf of its clients to assist them in their adoption-related legal matters, it cannot provide a guarantee of a particular outcome in any particular legal situation. As contingency fees are prohibited in most family law matters, ALCNOVA cannot structure fees based on the particular outcome of any legal matter.
