Stepparent Adoption in Georgia
While there are several different scenarios when it comes to adoptions, the most prevalent type of adoption we file at Hall & Navarro is a stepparent adoption. That is when a stepparent would like to adopt one or more of their stepchildren. They have historically supported this child, whether that’s through emotional needs, educational needs, or financially. They already have an established bond with the child or children.
Hiring an Attorney to Adopt in Georgia
Because the adoption process in Georgia can be complicated, I would not recommend anybody try it without an attorney. Our judges have a very detailed list of things they want to see before they will even consider your petition for adoption. It’s also important to understand the ins and outs of the Georgia code and Georgia laws for adoption of stepchildren.
Additionally, if you don’t have a surrender of rights from the biological father or mother, then you have an entirely separate process to go through. Prior to the petition for adoption being considered by the court, the court must hear evidence as to why they should terminate the rights of that biological parent. It’s a complicated process, but one that we are familiar with.
It’s important to have an experienced attorney that knows what the judges are looking for, even in the evidence. Judges consider any or all the following:
- A home study to produce evidence of your home
- Criminal history
- Evidence of your relationship with the child
