To establish a legal parent-child relationship with a non-biological child, one must file for adoption. This is a legal process that grants an adult the legal rights and responsibilities of a child that they adopt. The adult may be unrelated to the child, a relative of the child, or the spouse or domestic partner of the child’s biological parent. A legal adoption would remove the rights of one or both of the birth parents, depending on the type of adoption. Adopting a child is a step that will forever change you and your family’s life. The decision to adopt a child is made in order to provide a better life for all parties, but most importantly, the child.
There are many types of adoption to formally become the parent of a child, including but not limited to, private adoptions, international adoptions, step-parent adoptions and foster care adoptions.
The delicate process of adopting a child, whether it is a private adoption or through another avenue, requires great attention to detail to address complex legal issues. If you are thinking of adopting a child, you and your family will benefit tremendously from the guidance and assistance of our experienced attorneys. We are devoted to making the adoption process as smooth and stress-free as possible for your family.
An adult adoption is the process of establishing a legal relationship between a parent and an adult child who is over 18 years of age. The adopting parent may be unrelated to the adult child, a relative of the adult child, or the spouse or domestic partner of the adult child’s biological parent. Many times, a new spouse may want to adopt the adult child of his or her spouse. Adult adoption requires formal legal proceedings that are different from minor child adoptions.
