Stepparent Adoptions

The attorneys at Pritt & Pritt, PLLC, represent prospective stepparents in adoption proceedings, as well as biological parents looking to terminate their parental rights. No matter what your objective, we can explain the legal process involved and help you understand your options.

Under certain circumstances, a biological parent who is seeking to terminate his or her parental rights may still be responsible for child support once the stepparent adoption has been completed. It is very important to work with an attorney who understands this intricacy. In order for a biological parent to be relieved of his or her child support obligations, it is necessary to work a transfer of child support into the court order. Contact our law firm to find out more.

We also assist grandparents and other family members looking to adopt a minor child. If you have questions about the legal process of adoption or your specific legal options, talk to an attorney from our firm.
