The adoption of a step-child is very much like the adoption of any child. Our guide provide the terms, conditions, and procedures ('rules') that must be followed to adopt a step-child. Since a child can have no more than 2 'legal' parents at any one time; to clear the way for an adoption by a step-parent, the parental rights of the child's parent who will be replaced by the step-parent must be terminated. Most often it is the step-father that is adopting their step-child and therefore it is the parental rights of the child's biological father that must be terminated 'to make room' for the step-father to adopt his step-child.

In more and more cases, the biological parent's rights to their child have already been voluntarily surrendered; usually to avoid paying child support for the child. If the parent's rights have not been previously terminated (voluntarily or by court order), the adoption suit will necessarily seek to terminate the parent's rights as a requirement of the adoption. Generally, the parent's rights are 'officially' terminated clearing the way for the step-parent's adoption of the child at the same time as the adoption is granted by the court - in one suit - one court proceeding.
