Adoption Attorney in Riverview, FL
Adopting a child by the stepparent or taking the responsibility for a related child that needs a real family is one of the most wonderful things you can do. The adoption process can made easy by someone with the experience in the legal steps you have to take.
This office has handled several adoptions from close relatives. Whether the parents cannot take care of their children or the principal care giver is deceased, the office can guide you through the correct procedures to legally have the child as yours, as well as changing the name.
The office has done many step-parent adoptions where the non-custodial parent has permanently agreed to have their parental rights terminated. These parental rights can be voluntarily given up or based on the facts, i.e. imprisonment, neglect, desertion, etc. can be terminated by the Court. Names can be changed in the proceedings, birth certificates can be changed, etc.
Adult adoptions (people over 18) can be done by their stepparent or even by an unrelated person.
