Lawyer handling adoptions on behalf of San Bernardino families
There are two instances in which a stepparent will typically adopt a child. The first arises when the rights of one biological parent have been terminated. The second arises when both biological parents consent to the adoption. The process begins by filing a Petition with the Court. The Judge will typically hold a brief hearing, ensuring that the adoption is truly what the parties want, and sign an order. The family may then notify relevant governmental entities (such as school districts) of the change. By retaining an experienced attorney, you can help to ensure that all steps of the process are handled correctly and that your case proceeds through the system as efficiently as possible.
