Step Parent Adoption

If you are remarried and do not have a relationship with the other biological parent, you may be wondering if step-parent adoption is an option and how it works, among other things. Step-parent adoption represents a great chance for both you and your child (or children) to enjoy the increased security that comes with this legal arrangement. Studies have shown that there are tremendous psychological and emotional benefits to this type of family structure.

Simply put- a step parent adoption completely extinguishes the rights of the other biological parent and the step-parent becomes the legal parent of your child. In the event something were to ever happen to you, it would be the step-parent that would take guardianship of the child. While a step-parent adoption is not as complicated as other types of adoption, it is still a legal process that an experienced adoption attorney should help you with. This is especially true if there are issues with the biological parent, you are a same sex couple or you are in a situation where you each want to adopt children.

State laws vary by state and the sooner you get in touch with an attorney, the sooner you can celebrate this very exciting event.
