Being a parent is one of the most fulfilling roles that any person can ever hope to take on. For stepparents, there may come a time when you realize that you want the law to recognize the depth of the bond that has grown between you and your stepchildren.
Adopting your stepchildren allows you to secure the rights and privileges that truly reflect the depth of that relationship. At Bain, Files, Jarrett & Harrison, our Tyler stepparent adoption attorneys bring decades of experience to the aid of our clients. Our experience with stepparent adoptions can help ensure that all necessary elements for a legally valid adoption are met.
Adopting a Step-Child
In a typical stepparent adoption scenario, one of the parents has minimized their involvement in the lives of the children. There may be a failure to pay child support. There may be a failure to have meaningful contact with the children. There may even be a death.
The first step in a stepparent adoption is the termination of the parental rights of the other biological parent. Often this can be achieved by agreement. When that is not possible, there are steps that we can take to employ the power of the court to involuntarily terminate a parent’s rights. Our firm is skilled in negotiating these difficult steps and all others necessary to successfully complete the adoption of your stepchildren.
