When someone with a child (or children) remarries, the new spouse becomes the stepparent to the child (or children). A stepparent has very limited legal rights to his or her stepchildren. A stepparent may wish to adopt the stepchildren, especially when the previous parent is no longer a part of the child (or children’s) lives, such as when a biological parent passes away, is incarcerated, or simply has not maintained a relationship with the child (or children) for a significant period of time. Regardless of the situation, the attorneys at Hoff, Claringbole & Quigley, LLP, can help you navigate a stepparent adoption.
Grandparent And Relative Adoptions
Grandparents and other relatives have a unique relationship with the child (or children) and may want to adopt them, particularly when parents are unable or unwilling to care for the child (or children). Our attorneys at Hoff, Claringbole & Quigley, LLP can help with the adoption process and finalization.
