Adding a baby or a child to your family is a wonderful decision, especially if you decide to go through the adoption process to give a child in need a home. However, even when an adoption is handled efficiently, the process can still take considerable time to complete. Careful preparation, significant paperwork, and fact checking are necessary. If mistakes are made or important details overlooked, the process can drag on much longer than it needs to and may even be derailed.
A stepparent adoption can be the easiest type of adoption to complete, but it can still pose problems in certain circumstances. In stepparent adoption, the non-custodial biological parent must consent to a termination of his or her own parental rights. If they agree to do so, then the process can be completed quickly with the guidance of our Morris County adoption lawyer.
