If you remarry and want your new spouse to adopt a child or children from your previous marriage, start by connecting with the adoption lawyers at Kemp, Schaeffer & Rowe.
Married couples with children from a previous marriages can adopt those children as their own. The process needn’t require the consent of the child’s natural parent, depending on his or her history of support for the child and communication between them. But if a step parent adoption is approved by the probate court, the adopting parent assumes all duties of support and care for the child as if he or she were the child’s biological parent.
To adopt your spouse’s child from a previous marriage, you will need to be married for at least one year. And the process for doing so can be handled efficiently with the help of a Columbus, Ohio, step parent adoption lawyer. If you or your partner are considering a step parent adoption, contact Julia L. Leveridge.
