Jacksonville Adoption Attorneys
Adding a new family member can often be a rewarding, yet challenging experience. Whether you are adopting a step-child, relative, or non-relative child, there is a formal process that needs take place before you will legally be considered the child’s guardian. Utilizing a qualified Family Lawyer will help to not only make the process flow more smoothly, but will also ensure that all of the necessary paperwork is completed correctly and accurately.
The reason for the adoption, and the relationship you currently have with the child are both consideration factors in approving the adoption. If you are not currently related to the child, then there will be additional requirements for your adoption to be processed, such as the termination of the biological parent’s rights. This must be done before the adoption can take place. Adopting a child who is either related to you by blood or marriage is typically a much easier process than adopting an unknown child, however, do not let the process discourage you from making your family complete!
