One of the bright moments in a family courthouse is when a judge declares that your requested adoption is granted. It is usually followed by courtroom applause, pictures, and often tears of joy.
Adoptions are complicated family law matters that require the expertise of an attorney to help you navigate the complex, specific requirements necessary to help you finalize the adoption.
As with all family law matters, each adoption is different and presents its own set of challenges. Adoptions could involve stepparents, grandparents, or even adult adoptions.
Stepparent adoptions usually involve terminating the other biological parent. Usually this is accomplished by that parent agreeing and signing over their rights. However, some cases need to be litigated in order to obtain the necessary termination order.
