Stepparent Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful, joyous, and meaningful experience.

When a stepparent desires to extend his or her commitment to a child and formalizes this commitment through adoption, the whole family benefits. Most importantly, the child receives security, stability, and a sense of belonging.

A stepparent adoption may be straightforward if the biological parent’s consent is easily obtained. But the process can grow complex, particularly if involuntary termination of the biological parent’s rights to the child is sought.
