    Stepparent Adoption Procedure

    The procedure for stepparent appropriations usually goes faster than a non-family adoption and may be much less expensive. In fact, because many new families become parents quickly after adopting from another family, finding an adoptive parent can often reduce fees significantly compared you would have found it otherwise.

    Stepparents may choose to legally adopt their spouse’s children for a variety of reasons: they may simply want to establish the family, they may have health insurance reasons to complete the adoption or they may have inheritance reasons to complete the adoption. However, the parental rights of the child’s other parent first must be terminated before this can happen.
