More often than not, adoptions are considered one of the few joyous parts of the practice of family law. Adopting a child and solidifying the legal relationship between parent and child is a very happy occasion, but the adoption process can be very challenging for those not well-practiced in it. Though not always the case, adoptions can be difficult if, for example, the termination of one’s rights is being sought involuntarily. Even the simplest of adoptions requires a number of steps that must be carefully followed in order to avoid an issue down the road.
The attorneys at Osborne Family Law PLLC are experienced in all types of adoptions, including but not limited to step-parent adoptions whereby a step-parent seeks to adopt his or her spouse’s minor child. We are committed to making the adoption process the joyous occasion for your family that it should be.
