Stepparent adoption may be appropriate if a biological parent has no contact and has taken himself or herself completely out of the child's life. At the Katz Law Office, Ltd., we will prepare and file a formal notice on the biological parent or prove to the court that the biological parent simply cannot be found. There needs to be strong evidence and a notice has to be published in a newspaper.
Helping You Through the Adoption Process
In all child adoptions, a guardian ad litem or attorney will be assigned to represent the child throughout the child adoption process. That person will review the household and gather all relevant information. Our job is to guide you through the entire process. We move quickly and carefully to ensure everything is done within the law and you can legally claim the child as your own. We pride ourselves on not only the efficiency of our child adoption process, but our success in completing the process to our client's satisfaction.
