Step-Parent Adoption Document Preparation
Step-Parent Adoption Laws Vary from State to State
Adoption is a legal court proceeding that transfers parental rights and duties to an adult other that the child’s biological parent. The most common form of adoption is step-parent adoption. The step-parent takes on legal and financial responsibilities for a spouse’s children and the non-custodial biological parent is released from the same.
While step-parent adoption laws vary from one state to another, the process has various requirements to be met including parental consents, official marriage documentation, an adoption petition, and investigation of the prospective adoptive parent.
The adoption documents that need to be prepared and filed are also different in each state. When you need help preparing those according to your state’s requirements, call on We the People to help you get the job done accurately and efficiently.
