Gresham Stepparent Adoption Lawyers
Stepparent adoption, while a joyous occasion, follows a strict process that is best handled by a skilled Oregon lawyer. If you are considering adopting your spouse's children from a prior relationship, we encourage you to contact our firm at your earliest convenience.
Since 2001, our Gresham stepparent adoption attorneys have guided parents through the full range of family law matters. Stepparent adoption is the process by which a blended family becomes united legally as well as emotionally. Our attorneys can provide you valuable insight and full legal representation to a stepparent who want to remove all legal ties between a child and a biological parent and assume the rights or responsibilities of a legal parent.
Multnomah County Termination Of Parental Rights Attorneys
While straightforward, the adoption process can be complicated at several different stages. One such stage is the termination of natural (often absent) parents rights. In order to allow a stepparent adoption to move forward, a biological parent must be notified of the action, or voluntarily relinquish visitation or custody rights with the minor child. This is referred to as the termination of parental rights. As you can imagine, even an absent parent may object to terminating all future contact with his or her biological child. The attorneys at Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law will carefully examine your specific situation and provide advice on how best to proceed.
From start to finish, this process can take up to six months. We encourage parents to schedule a consultation as soon as possible so we can begin developing a case strategy specifically tailored to your wants and needs.
