We Work Toward Achieving Positive Results

Our firm has had success helping people adopt their stepchildren at all stages of life. Some stepparents get involved when the child is still a baby or very young. Adoption at this stage can set the groundwork for a positive relationship and makes issues like bringing the kids to the doctor, obtaining school records, and other legal matters easier to handle. For others, adoption is a mutual decision between the parent and older stepchild as a way to secure their bond and relationship.

Whatever your situation, we will sit down to discuss your goals, concerns and the necessary steps to take in order to finalize the adoption process. We will submit all the proper notices of intent to the biological parent and file appropriate information with the court in a timely manner to help avoid delays. If necessary, we will work with you to build a strong case showing why parental rights should be terminated, allowing you to provide a more stable and loving environment for the child.
