Securing The Rights Of A Parent Through Adoption

There are many reasons why a child may need to be cared for by someone other than his or her biological parent. Adoption can help bridge that gap and ensure that a child is taken care of by someone who is committed to his or her well-being.

Stepparent Adoption

For many stepparents, the relationships they have with their stepchildren can become very deep and meaningful. In some of those situations, adoption is the right choice. Perhaps the child’s other biological parent is not a presence in the child’s life or he or she is unfit to parent.

We can help you secure the legal recognition of your relationship with your stepchild.

Adoption By Grandparents, Other Relatives, And Guardians

Depending on the circumstances of the child’s situation, a child might be raised by a grandparent, another relative or a guardian. These relationships can become the most stable and necessary in the child’s life. But, without the benefit of being recognized as the child’s parent, the caregiver may be unable to do everything he or she can for the child.

We can help grandparents, other relatives and guardians adopt the children in their care.
