Step Parent Adoption

There are many reasons why people want to consider step-parent adoption, typically due to a change in relationships and family environments. In some circumstances, new partners become a part of a family and want to have parental responsibility for stepchildren.

Step-Parent adoption allows for full parental rights and responsibilities as if a person was their full biological parent to step-children.
