Are You Looking For A Lawyer To Help With A Stepparent Or Same-Sex Adoption?

One of the most positive experiences a family law attorney can help with is an adoption. When a family grows, this can be a very joyous occasion.

Stepparent Adoptions

While stepparent adoption is many times not as complicated as other types of adoptions, this does not mean it is easy in every situation. A stepparent seeking to adopt a stepchild must get consent from the biological parent (most likely the ex-spouse of the spouse he or she married). If a biological parent refuses to give consent or to terminate his or her parental rights, the legal situation can become complex. That is why it is important to have a family law attorney representing your rights and advocating for you and your child's best interests.

Same-Sex Adoptions

For same-sex couples seeking an adoption, there are many different options from open or closed domestic adoptions to international adoptions. What is right for you and your spouse is something our lawyer will discuss with you in a private and confidential consultation. From there, attorney Stacey Selleck will help you move forward with your adoption plan and toward expanding your growing family.
