Adoptions

Growing Your Family

In-family adoptions occur when a stepparent or domestic partner wishes to legally adopt their spouse’s biological child. These can be incredibly rewarding ways to grow your family, but there are hurdles to overcome. Because the law only allows two people to be a child’s parents, the parental rights of one parent must be terminated. 

The Empower Law Group will walk you through the process, prepare you for the adoption hearings, and ensure that the paperwork is submitted correctly and accurately so that you can be a parent to a child who needs one.
