Here at Schulz Stephenson Law, we were happy to help her and unite her family in a safe, protected fashion.


“On May 15, 2015 I was served with a child custody suit concerning my adopted grandchild. I was to appear in a NC court on May 21, 2015. I live in Missouri. I found Brad Schulz on the NC Bar Assoc website. Acting on blind faith, I hired Brad and his staff. He went to work immediately requesting copies of information I forgot existed. Through phone conversations he prepared my case. On May 21st he represented me so I didn’t have to travel to NC. Working together through today’s amazing technology, Brad won that custody case. Either Brad or his assistant, Catherine, were in contact with me at least every other day, if not every day. Because of family dynamics involved, I feel my life was restored. I’ll forever be grateful to two people I never met in person, however, they felt like old friends.”


Adoption or custody processes can be comprised of multiple steps, varying on the circumstance; a few things that are generally universal for every case are the following:
• Letters of Reference
• Advising a legally savvy range of monetary costs for your adoption, pertaining to your case, source of adoption, and history
• Adoption Home Studies
• Law updates pertaining to your adoption
• Will editing and monetary security issues
• Citizen transfers and immigration details
• Protecting the child from messy custody battles or taking a child out of unfit custody
