Helping Families Blend

We can help step-parents interested in adopting their spouse’s child from a previous relationship. In these types of adoptions, the biological parent can consent to the adoption and the termination of his/her parental rights. The stepparent that adopts a child in this manner will be physically and financially responsible for the child and considered a legal parent to said child.

In the event the biological parent does not consent to the adoption, we can help the other parent and the stepparent desiring to have the child adopted to file a petition to terminate the parental rights of the biological parent.

There are a number of grounds for termination of parental rights over a child. For more information, please contact our office 603-473-4338 or contact us for a free initial consultation by phone or at our office.
