Forming new families through adoption.
To adopt a child, it helps to understand some of the legal, practical, and emotional hurdles so that you can prepare for a long, complicated process. The following tips will help you with the practical and emotional aspects.
Many of the adoptions our lawyers handle are by stepparents or relatives who wish to adopt a child already living with them. In these cases, the biological parent is either absent from the child's life or unable to care for the child. In addition to giving the child the security of a permanent parent-child relationship, adoption gives the adoptive parent all the same legal rights as a biological parent.
