Adoption by a stepparent can be a wonderful experience for a child who either has a parent that is not involved or is not financially able to provide for their child. Once the other parent agrees to permit a stepparent adoption, we can assist you in making the adoption a much less frightening, much more enjoyable process.
For the parent relinquishing his/her parental rights, this process will mean that their ongoing child support obligation will cease, thus keeping them from continuing to accrue child support arrears. For the parent whose spouse will be adopting the child, they will no longer be receiving ongoing child support from the other parent.
