Adoptions are one of the most rewarding types of family law to handle, as there is nothing more special than putting a family together.
The most common type of adoption is the step-parent adoption, where one biological parent’s spouse wishes to adopt their step-children.
Alternatively, there are grandparent adoptions, other family members who adopt their relative’s child or children, or adoptions by non-relatives.
These matters can either be contested adoptions where it is required to terminated a parent’s parental rights before the adoption is allowed, or an uncontested adoption, where all parents consent to the adoption.
As with all matters involving children, it is crucial to have knowledgeable and proactive representation to assist you through the adoption process.
