Step-Parent Adoption                            $550

Stepparent adoption usually takes place when a divorced spouse, who has custody of the children from the previous marriage, remarries and the new stepparent desires to adopt the children as his or her own.

Generally, the other biological parent needs to have his or her parental rights terminated by the Court. Please see that process HERE on our Custody Page.

Otherwise, the other parent may consent to the adoption in some instances. 

Packet Includes:

Family Court Cover Sheet
