Step Parent Adoption Lawyer

Step Parent Adoption Process

Many times following a divorce, one of the parents remarries and the step parent become the only parent the child knows, if they were very young when a divorce occurred. When a step parent takes on all the responsibilities of raising the child, an adoption of the child can make the relationship legal. Often an ex-spouse fails to remain in the child's life in any way, financially or emotionally. They may move away or simply not be responsible enough to care about their child. If you are in such a position and wish to cement the relationship you have with your stepchildren, Bogle Law is a very experienced family law attorney who can assist you in the adoption process.

Why Adopt a Step Child?

When you become a step parent and take on the responsibility of raising, caring for and loving the child, you essentially become the child's parent, especially in their eyes. However, without the protection of legal parenthood, you have no legal rights to that child should something happen to your spouse or if the biological parent decides to begin some type of legal proceeding to take the child. Adoption gives a stepparent the same rights as a birth parent.

Often terminating the birth parent's rights is not difficult as the parent is not involved in the child's life in any way. However, there can be instances where the matter needs to be taken to court if there are issues. Our legal team is dedicated to assisting parents to solidify their bond with their stepchildren by all legal means possible. Serving the communities of Charlotte County, South Sarasota County and Arcadia, South Florida, we have helped numerous clients such as yourself to adopt their step child. We can do the same for you.
