Guiding You Through The Stepparent Adoption Process
It is a common desire among stepparents to adopt their stepchildren. Our attorneys can help you make this a reality. We can help you to your Stepparent Adoption Process.
We handle all aspects of private adoptions by stepparents, including termination of the biological parent’s rights. Oftentimes, this termination is voluntary. If the biological parent does not consent to the termination, however, we will also explore the possibility of an involuntary termination of rights.
There are many legal reasons to pursue a stepparent adoption. Formal adoption establishes the legal custody rights and responsibilities of the stepmother or stepfather, giving stepparents the right to make important decisions regarding the child’s future. The adoption process also formalizes the child’s inheritance rights.
More important, adoption can draw families closer together by formalizing the bonds between parent and child. This gives children a sense of stability and permanence.
The attorneys at Henry & Beaver, LLP are here to help bring more joy and happiness into your family through adoption. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced family law attorneys at 717-274-3644.”
