What is a Step-Parent Adoption?

A stepparent adoption is slightly different than your typical adoption. When a stepparent adopts a child, the biological parent retains his or her rights as a parent. These rights are typically terminated in a regular adoption. Additionally, when a stepparent adopts a child the non-custodial parent’s responsibilities toward the child may be terminated, such as child support payments.

A stepparent adoption is often a smart choice when planning for the future and is a selfless decision that will bring your family even closer together.

If you want to ensure the adoption process goes as smoothly as possible and that you are successful in adopting your spouse’s child, or if you have any questions about stepparent adoptions in Florida, please do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at The Orner Law Firm. We are here to help.
