Salem-based Immigration and Adoption Attorney, Christine Poarch, has been named a Fellow of the prestigious Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys (AAAA or “Quad-A”).

The Academy is an exclusive, worldwide organization, whose membership must have extensive, proven experience in the practice of adoption law.

Currently, the majority of Virginian attorneys in the academy are based in and around DC and Christine is the only attorney with a practice in Southwest Virginia.

President of the Academy Eric Stovall said, “We are delighted to welcome Christine into the Academy. Having a resource of her caliber in Southwest Virginia combined now with the support of the Academy will be a great asset to the local community. “

Poarch’s work as an Immigration and Adoption attorney has spanned almost two decades.

“The work we’ve done in international and domestic adoption is some of our most challenging and rewarding. It’s both an honor and an opportunity to be named an Adoption Fellow.” Christine Poarch said.

Poarch’s induction into AAAA follows a highly selective process, including extensive demonstrated expertise, audited professional experience, a referral for admission by several current AAAA members, and a rigorous review of ethical practices.

Standby Child Form

We’ve received a number of requests for a document that would permit a “standby” guardian to step in should ICE detain a child’s parent or guardian.  We asked one of our local attorney colleagues to devise a form that would at least indicate parental choice of a temporary guardian.  We provide it here for free in light of multiple reports that non-attorneys are charging to produce similar documents.  Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have a child with serious disabilities or if you would like to explore whether you have options for gaining status in the U.S.  By providing this form, we are not giving anyone legal advice, but rather, responding to the urgent need some parents feel to make a designation in light of increased immigration enforcement.  If you have a child with special needs or a disability, or if you seek further advice about this sort of “standby” guardianship, please consult an attorney or call us for a referral to a seasoned attorney experienced in these matters.
