We handle specific types of uncontested adoptions at our firm, including stepparent adoptions and close relative adoptions, including adult adoptions.
A simple adoption process consists of filing a Petition, along with either a Consent from the adult adoptee or a Consent by the birth parent, terminating all of their parental rights upon the entry of the Final Order of Adoption. If a birth father's identity is unknown, we will search the proper state's birth father registry in order to ascertain whether the birth father registered, according to the statutory requirements. After the Final Order of Adoption is entered, we will walk you through the next steps with your new family member.
