New York Stepparent Adoption Lawyer

Stepparent Adoption Requirements

If you are a stepparent hoping to adopt your spouse's child, our New York adoption lawyers are prepared to help guide you through the process swiftly and successfully. Stepparent adoptions ensure that an adoptive stepparent will have the same rights and responsibilities as the birth parent. There are specific requirements that must be fulfilled prior to beginning a stepparent adoption.

If a child's birth parent is still living and is no longer involved in the child's life, then they must consent to the proposed stepparent adoption. Once the stepparent adoption is completed, the parent giving up custody of the child is then released from all legal and financial obligations to that child.

One of the most important hurdles you might have to face during a step-parent adoption is obtaining the consent of the non-involved parent who has shown little interest in the child and, in some cases, may be difficult to locate. Our New York adoption attorneys have the legal skills and dedication needed to tackle these and other complications should they arise, and we are fully prepared to support you through the entirety of your adoption process.
