Many wonderful families are created through adoptions. Our attorneys can assist you in securing those families. The most common types of adoptions are adoptions by stepparents and adoptions by partners. In stepparent adoptions, where the non-custodial biological parent consents to the adoption, it can be an inexpensive and streamlined process.

More complicated situations require careful evaluation before proceeding. It is important to consider the practical, legal, and emotional aspects of a stepparent adoption before proceeding. We can help you decide if it's right to proceed with a stepparent adoption and initiate contact with the non-custodial parent on your behalf. Uncontested stepparent adoptions can often be completed in three to four months. Non-stepparent adoptions can be more complicated, and we would be happy to consult with you on a case-by-case basis.
