STEP-PARENT ADOPTION

Step Parent Adoption

If you have a child or children and would like your husband, wife, or significant other to become their legal parent, the legal process is step parent adoption or second parent adoption. It can be accomplished with or without the consent of the other biological or legal parent, depending upon the circumstances.

Over the last 30 years, Joel Kirsh has assisted with many step parent and second parent adoptions and would be happy to explain the procedure and answer all of your questions, without cost or obligation.
