Adoptions

Most attorneys and judges consider adoption the only area in family law that has a truly happy ending. In these situations, the legal system comes together to put a child in need with a loving family. If you are considering adoption, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at our office.

We have experience guiding clients through the full range of family law matters. Adoptions, while a positive experience, can still be a lengthy and frustrating process. Whether you are considering a stepparent adoption or an adoption through the Department of Human Services (DHS), our firm can provide valuable insight and the personal attention your case needs.

Step-Parent Adoptions Attorney

When a single parent remarries, the new spouse will often choose to adopt the minor child. In the realm of adoptions, stepparent adoptions are the most common. Even though they are common, stepparent adoptions are not without stress. If there is another legal parent, the first thing that must happen is the termination of the other parent's rights. This is a formal document that one parent signs to legally remove himself or herself from the child's life. If a parent refuses to relinquish his or her rights to the child, it may take a hearing and necessary evidence to show why they should loose the right to be a part of your child's life. Once this is completed, the new parent can formally adopt the child.
