How to Adopt Your Stepchild

Over half of the adoptions that take place in the United States each year involve stepparents adopting their stepchildren. This usually helps to provide the channels to strengthen life-long bonds between parent and child.

There are several advantages to step-parent adoption:

  • Adoption may help nurture the relationship between the step-parent and the child.
  • Adoption eliminates the birth parent's rights to the adopted child, and the step-parent becomes the legal "parent" and guardian of the child.
  • The adopted child has the same rights and obligations of a "natural child". For instance, an adopted child would have the right to the step-parent's inheritance just as if he or she were the child's birth parent.
