Many issues may arise when a stepparent seeks to formally adopt a child. For example, there may be a need to terminate a biological parent’s parental rights. Whatever the relevant issues may be, the procedural matters of stepparent adoption should be handled with care and legal acumen.
Grandparents may have to adopt their grandchildren for a number of reasons. Sometimes the biological parent has passed away, and sometimes there are questions of whether the biological parents are fit to retain parental rights. In any case, the path to grandparent adoption is rarely straightforward, and legal guidance is very important to make the process as smooth as possible.
