Stepparent Adoption 

You’ve become a major part of their lives. 

Adopting a stepchild is the most common form of adoption. It is highly commendable for a noncustodial parent to take on the love and care of a child, and we just want to make sure they are in good hands by making this process as streamlined as possible. 

While stepparents already carry several serious responsibilities of their stepchildren, legal adoption allows benefits and ramifications many may not be aware of. Despite already caring for, loving and being there for your stepchildren, you may be surprised to learn adoption is the final tier of responsibility in the eyes of the law.

Stepparent adoption is a wonderful affirmation of commitment, love, and dedication to your spouse’s children. Not only does it carry amazing emotional worth, it can mean quite a bit of difference in the eyes of the law. If you are a stepparent looking to legally adopt your spouse’s children, you are making a big step in securing your role in their lives as a legal parent, and it is one to be celebrated. This is where we are experts in seamlessly guiding you through this process.
