Step Parent Adoptions
Are you a step parent who provides primary care for the step children? You may be married to someone who has children from a previous marriage or relationship. If the father or mother of the children is no longer in the picture or is not doing his or her job to provide care to the children, you may feel like they deserve a lot better and would love to have the opportunity to adopt them as your own so that you are fully responsible for them.
As a step parent, there are a few things you need to know before you start the adoption process. You must be fully prepared to take on all the legal responsibilities that come along with caring for the children.

While things may have been complicated in the past for the someone who has just turned 18, it will now be a lot easier to make the adoption official.
The only two people who will need to provide their consent to the adoption are the child who has recently turned 18 and the adult who is agreeing to the adoption. It is a much simpler process that does not take long at all. Once the person is officially adopted, the adopted parent is considered the legal guardian and is the person who can make important decisions, leave an inheritance behind, and ultimately continue providing the best care possible.
