Adoption allows fathers and mothers to expand their family and give a child an opportunity that he or she may not have had otherwise. Adoption also legalizes a parental relationship and makes a family complete. At the Law Office of Elizabeth Stup, LLC, we strive to make this process as efficient as possible. We understand that in addition to being a joyful occasion, adding a new family member and waiting for an adoption to be finalized can be stressful.
It is important to make sure that the documentation for the adoption is prepared and filed properly. Appropriate consents must be obtained from the biological parents to ensure that the adoption may be finalized. If the adoption is a stepparent adoption or the adoption of an adult child, the biological parent who is relinquishing his or her parental rights must sign a consent to the adoption.
Our office is prepared to support and assist our clients through the adoption process.
