Types of Adoption We Offer

Step-Parent Adoption

When a custodial parent marries a person who is not the biological parent of a child, the new step-parent may adopt the child and take over legal and financial responsibilities from the non-custodial parent. This type of adoption generally requires consent from the non-custodial parent, unless that parent has been unjustifiably absent from the child's life or has had their parental rights terminated.

If you are considering adopting your step-child, our attorneys can assist you in determining whether you qualify to obtain a step-parent adoption as well as assisting you through the process.
