Obtaining Consent

One way to move forward in the step-parent adoption process is to obtain consent from the birth parent. This can sometimes be a bit delicate, as giving consent for adoption is also giving up parental rights. We are able to handle the paperwork for this type of procedure, and handle the process with care and sensitivity to the emotional issues that are sometimes involved.

Termination Of Parental Rights

Termination of parental rights is another avenue that can be considered for step-parent adoptions. This option is usually considered if a birth parent has abandoned the child, cannot be located, or is an unfit parent. To learn more about what factors are considered for the termination of parental rights, please get in touch with our office.
