Adopting a relative means that you will assume all of the responsibilities associated with the child. Just as with any adoption process, the State of New York establishes numerous procedures and requirements that must be met in order for a relative to qualify for adoption. These may include pre-certification requirements, such as criminal background checks and home studies, and the filing of a formal petition with the court.
