Kevin Shea and Andy Egan assisted an active-duty Air Force Airman in the adoption of his 12-year-old step-son. Though the family are New York natives, they live in Germany, on Ramstein Air Base, where the step-father works in an Aircrew Flight Equipment group. To facilitate the adoption proceedings, Kevin and Andy filed a Petition for Adoption in the Nassau County Surrogate’s Court in NY. They gathered and notarized all of the necessary documents, coordinated background checks and fingerprints, arranged a home visit with the Social Worker, and served as liaisons with the Court, all while working around the New York-Germany time difference. The team finalized the adoption on July 10, 2019, in front of the Hon. Margaret C. Reilly in a hearing attended by Andy Egan.
