The concept of a traditional family has been significantly redefined over the course of the last several decades. Now, many children in New Hampshire are being raised by parents with no biological relationship, sometimes creating complicated legal situations regarding family law. In fact, many stepparents are often full-time care providers and often want to legally protect their rights to parent their children. Clark Law PLLC is committed to helping stepparents through the adoption process.
Many stepparents, along with their spouses, want to go through the adoption process. The completion of the process means that the stepparent becomes the legal parent of the child. This includes being both financially and physically responsible for the child.
A biological parent can consent to such adoption, resulting in the termination of his or her parental rights. If the parent does not consent, our law firm can help file a petition for the termination of parental rights. While each case is unique, there are a variety of different reasons why parental rights might be terminated.
Unfortunately, many issues of family law can be complicated. While it may be tempting to attempt to handle these problems alone, our law firm has experience with such issues, allowing us to help our clients navigate through the process. Often, an initial consultation can be the first step toward a future that is more secure for both the parents and children involved. We are dedicated to helping families in New Hampshire seek the legal outcome necessary to ensure that the best interests of their children are being met.
