Adoption can be complex, but we're here to help you through it. During the stepparent adoption process, you'll have to obtain:
- Consent from the child's birth parent if they are still living and no longer involved in the child's life
- Clearance from the court if you can't obtain consent from the biological parent
- Consent from the child if they are older than 14 years of age
Our attorneys will help you find a way forward with your adoption. Speak with an attorney today about your situation.
