Hollywood Step Parent Adoption Attorney

Over time, it might make sense for a step-parent to adopt their spouse’s child. Not only does this bond the family but it also signals that this step-parent has stepped up to take on the necessary responsibilities. Adoption is more than changing a name. Instead, it involves filing the appropriate paperwork with the courts and terminating the biological parent’s rights.

Ronald P. Hansen understands how to navigate the adoption process. He can help clients file the necessary petitions to a Florida court. This document will explain why the step-parent is pursuing adoption. If there are complications with the biological parent, Hansen can help clients navigate them.

Once the adoption process is complete, the step-parent will take on all obligations linked to the child: support, care, and guardianship. This formalizes relationships or bonds that have already been built, and it ensures that a child’s welfare is always cared for.
