Understanding Step Parent Adoption and Grand Parent Adoption in Kansas

We can help stepparents to become official dads or moms to the children that have completed their family. To adopt your spouse’s child or children, you must meet several requirements.

Termination of the other parent’s legal rights: The child’s other parent must consent to terminate their rights or the court itself must terminate said right. This means they won’t be obligated to pay child support and will lose all rights associated with custody and/or visitation. If they don’t consent, an adoption attorney can petition the court to terminate rights when they haven’t kept in contact with the child and/or paid child support or offered financial support for the required period. We also can help grandparents to adopt their grandchildren. An adoption attorney can also help with legal name changes or guardianships, if needed.
