Types of Adoption

Most adoptions fall into the category of either Stepparent or DCS adoptions. Both of these can be complex, and it is essential to work with experienced family law attorneys who can guide you through the legal processes and ensure the best outcome for the child involved. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact our office for a strategy session.

Department of Child Service Adoptions


DCS adoptions involve the adoption of children who are in the foster care system due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. These adoptions provide a permanent home for children who cannot return to their biological families. 

Stepparent Adoption

Stepparent adoption is a legal process where a step-parent becomes the legal parent of their spouse’s child. This process severs the legal ties between the child and their non-custodial biological parent and creates a new legal relationship with the step-parent.
