Lawyer Helping You Complete An Adoption
Taking Care Of Your Adoption From Beginning To End
In stepparent adoptions, the biggest potential obstacle can be terminating the other birth parent’s parental rights. In some cases, the birth parent will consent to terminating his or her rights. In other cases, a birth parent’s behavior may constitute termination of his or her rights. For instance, if a parent abandons or fails to offer support for a long period of time, it can be implied that the parent is giving up his or her parental rights.
He understands that these situations can be potentially delicate and emotional. He also understands how beneficial and joyful an adoption can be for both the child and the parents, and will do whatever is necessary under the law to accomplish that result.
