We, at Fraier & Maillet, have assisted in many stepfamily adoptions.  Unlike other child adoptions where the court requires home visits and adoption hearings, the court will generally speed up the process and lessen the requirements for a stepchild adoption.

While it is generally an easier process, there are certain steps which must be followed.  The primary issue that stepparents must deal with in adoptions is obtaining the consent of the other birth parent.

If you are interested in adopting your stepchild, please call Fraier & Maillet and schedule a meeting so that we can discuss how you might obtain the other parent’s consent and how we can assist you in navigating the system and completing the process.
