THE PURPOSE OF RAPID ADOPTION
The purpose of this web site
is to give the visitor a general understanding
of the law; not to provide specific advice.
A great deal of care has been taken to provide
accurate and current information, but the ideas,
general principles and conclusions presented
in this site may change from time to time depending
on county, state and federal laws and regulations
and court cases. Because the law constantly
changes and varies from place to place, and
is subject to changeable interpretations, the
reader is urged to consult professional legal
counsel in his or her state regarding the applicability
of any point of law discussed at this Site to
any specific problem. No part of this web site
or communication with personnel shall be used
in place of competent legal advice.

Refunds: Adoption is a complicated
issue and we know that a host of things could
arise during the process. Our refund policy
reflects our ideal of, "We are here to
help every single one of our customers through
the adoption process." All refunds given
will be given based only on the 101% Performance
Guarantee which states: "If the Judge fails
to grant your adoption due to a paperwork typographical
error, then we will correct the problem. If
we cannot correct the problem, then your money
will be refunded 101%." If a refund is
given outside of this predefined Guarantee it
will be at the sole discretion of RAPID ADOPTION
SERVICE. There will not be refunds given for:
the purchaser changes their mind, not understanding
your State Laws pertaining to adoption, problems
relating to computers, the biological parents
change their mind, claims of credit card abuse,
out of state or country adoption petitioners,
or a party decides to use the services of a
lawyer. None of these circumstances are the
fault of The Rapid Adoption Service and will
not justify a refund. Also, if the local court
does not accept the adoption forms initially,
we will adjust the forms, if we have them. Some
local courts have forms that are not available
to have on computer. In this case, you will
have to provide us with the form, in whatever
format you can, if you would like to have a
particular local form completed for you. This
situation is adjustable and does not deem a
refund. We are not responsible for local court
forms. If a refund is given by discretion of
RAPID ADOPTION SERVICE outside of the predefined
101% Performance Guarantee, then a $25 dollar
administrative fee will be accessed. To receive a refund based on the Guarantee, you will be responsible to provide the court rejection notice that is received from the court.
