Many people run into obstacles or have legal questions at different points throughout the adoption process. Adopting a child is a big step for an individual or family to take. The entire adoption process can take years and can be overwhelming and frustrating. However, adoption can be the best option for the child, the adoptive parents, and the child’s biological parents. Welcoming your new child into a safe, loving home is the ultimate reward for your struggles.
Step Parent Adoption
Adoption of a child by a stepparent can be a difficult process, especially if it is opposed by a biological parent of the child. The courts must first determine that it is appropriate to terminate the parental rights of the biological parent before allowing the adoption to occur. A termination of parental rights petition is not something the court takes lightly, nor is it a simple process. If you are facing this situation, you should seek legal advice before proceeding.
