Step Parent Adoption
This refers to adoption by a child’s legal parent’s spouse. Second parent adoption, which is also called co-parent adoption, refers to adoption by someone who is acting in the parental role already, but who isn’t necessarily the spouse of the legal parent. As advancements have increased in assisted reproduction, second-parent adoption also has become increasingly common, for both opposite-sex and same-sex couples. Allow Mary Daugherty to guide you through and explain the complexities that are involved with step-parent adoption procedures.
