I assist stepparents with adopting the children of their spouses. This requires the non-custodial parent to relinquish her or his parental rights and to consent to the adoption. If this consent is obtained, stepparent adoption is usually one of the most straightforward forms of adoption.
Gay and Lesbian Adoption
New Jersey was the first state to explicitly allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples. Helping GLBT couples add to their family through adoption has become a focus of my practice. Call my office to discuss GLBT adoption further.
