Contact us to schedule an initial consultation where we can discuss your legal options.

Termination of Parental Rights

For a prospective stepparent to adopt the child of his or her spouse, the rights of the non-active biological parent must be terminated. Our firm assists clients throughout the termination of parental rights process. Once a stepparent adoption is complete, the stepmother or stepfather has the same rights as the biological mother or father.

Grandparent Adoptions

Grandparents do not have automatic custody rights to their grandchildren - even if they are better fit caregivers than the biological parents. Grandparents who wish to legally establish their position as primary caregivers should consider a grandparent adoption or a grandparent custody order.

Our firm assists grandparents who wish to adopt a grandchild. There may be many reasons for a grandparent to pursue an adoption, including: Another reason a grandparent may wish to adopt a grandchild is to stop interference by one or both biological parents. Once grandparents' rights have been legally established, a grandparent has the same legal rights as a biological parent. If a biological parent tries to interfere, a grandparent now has legal recourse.
