The Stepparent Adoption Process
It’s important to understand what you will be facing as you begin the stepparent adoption process with Attorney Audu. This process is often complex and confusing, but the Audu Law Firm is dedicated to helping families during the most crucial moments of their lives.
The process for stepparent adoption includes:
- Petition filing: The adoption process begins with filing a petition with the local family court.
- Termination of parental rights: If the absent parent refuses to terminate their parental rights, the case moves to court where a judge will decide what is in the best interest of the child.
- Evaluation: This step includes a home visit and an evaluation of employment and financial records.
- Amicus attorney: The court will bring a non-biased lawyer who will conduct similar evaluations along with interviews to determine if the environment is what is best for the child.
The adoption process is often emotional, and you cannot afford to make these important decisions without skilled counsel. As an experienced Sugar Land stepparent adoption lawyer, Attorney Audu can provide legal support that is trustworthy, professional, and committed.
