Are you a step-parent or other family member considering adoption? Few things are as rewarding as choosing to bring a new member into your family. Here at Lundberg Law we can guide you through the entire process.
For those considering adoption there are several steps that will be required. The first issue that must be addressed is the status of the other parent’s rights. Is the other parent deceased? Have they executed a voluntary relinquishment? Are you seeking to have their rights terminated? Each one of these scenarios will require different courses of action to successfully complete the adoption.
Next, a home study will be conducted to determine the fitness of the child’s potential residence and living environment. After the home study is finalized the adopting parent will need to undergo an extensive background check.
