Stepparent Adoption

Stepparent Adoption

There are many blended families and blood does not always define who is “family.” In limited situations the new spouse can adopt your child/children from the previous relationship. You and your new spouse must be married and the biological father or mother of the children must have abandoned the children or consent to such adoption. Your new spouse becomes the legal parent of the child/children, with all the rights and responsibilities that come with that, including paying child support and having timesharing rights upon divorce. Attorney Helena Y. Farber has vast experience with stepparent adoptions and can help you to evaluate your situation and see if a stepparent adoption is the right option for your family.
