Step Parent Adoption

Step-parent adoption is a process which enables someone who lacks legal parental status to become a legal parent. We can advise you about the process and support you through it.

Step-parent adoption can be appropriate in various different scenarios. You may like to become a legal parent to your partner’s child. Alternatively, you may lack legal parental status because of the circumstances of conception. This would be the case for a non-birth mother if you and your partner were unmarried at the time your child was conceived with a donor, and the conception took place at home.

If you would like to find out more about how we can help, please call us or send us an email.
