Kansas Stepparent Adoptions

As new families are made through second marriages, more and more stepparents become interested in adopting their stepchildren. Clients rely on our stepparent adoption attorney for efficient and effective legal guidance. With my experience, hard work, and your help, the stepparent adoption process can often be completed within 45 days. To get started on securing the adoption of your stepchild or stepchildren, contact me.

The stepparent adoption process requires the biological, noncustodial parent to terminate his or her parental rights to the child. If the parent does not terminate his or her rights, or if he or she opposes the adoption, adoption can still happen. However, the adoption process will require additional efforts to prove the parent’s absence from the child’s life and care, and the resulting benefit of the stepparent adopting the child.

Grandparent Adoptions

If you wish to legally adopt your grandchild, the process is similar to a stepparent adoption. The child’s parents must terminate their parental rights, or you must prove that the parents are absent from the child’s life. At Adams Cross, LLC, I handle grandparent adoptions for grandparents of children that have two parents living, only one parent living, or neither parent living. To learn more about your rights as a concerned grandparent and options for adopting your grandchild, contact me, a grandparent adoption attorney.

Out-of-State and International Adoptions

I also help parents who wish to adopt a child from out of state or from another country. I can help make sure that the process of adoption goes as smoothly as possible, as well as ensuring that all-important and necessary documentation is complete. I am experienced in working with state and international adoption agencies to complete the process quickly so you can bring your child home.
