Columbia Law School Professor Carol Sanger recently discussed the evolution of post-adoption visitation rights during her Sidney and Walter Siben Distinguished Professorship Lecture in Family Law at Hofstra University’s Maurice A. Deane School of Law. Sanger, the Law School’s Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law, focused specifically on the open adoption process, and how it has become more prevalent in modern society. Sanger’s lecture, “Bargaining for Motherhood: Post-adoption Visitation Agreements,” is slated to appear in the Hofstra Law Review.

I'm involved with a NY state Surrogate's Court contested adoption matter (on the side of the birth parents and child who was never appointed counsel) and would like to speak with Professor Sanger about the case. The birth mother is a seriously mental ill woman with extensive domestic violence and child abuse history against the child, who has sought to contest the private placement adoption for almost 5 years and is now for the 8th time attempting to seek visitation after 2 orders of protection. It would be an interesting teaching case.
