There are several types of adoption, including stepparent, adult, co-parent, grandparent or relative, and standby adoption. In every adoption, with the exception of adult adoption, the biological parents' rights must be terminated either voluntarily or after the court finds them to be unfit parents. The court will also need to find that adoption is in the best interests of the child(ren). The attorneys at the Law Offices of Patrick Markey, P.C. are experienced in this complex field of family law and can help you through the adoption process from start to finish, no matter which type of adoption is required.
