Helping You Navigate Through the Convoluted Maze of Adoption

We cannot predict what is going to happen in the future. Many marriages face difficult issues that test their resolve. In the event that these unanticipated issues get the better of these individuals, their children's futures may become jeopardized. Whether it is due to psychological, economic or other factors, sometimes the biological parent may not be the ideal person to raise a child.

In this case, it is in the best interests of the child to have him/her be raised by stepparents who will be able to provide for the child more consistently. Stepparent adoption can be a convoluted process if you do not have the right kind of legal guidance. When it comes to child custody and adoption, our professional family lawyer may have the perfect legal solutions for you. Our 25+ years of experience in divorce law makes us well-poised to steer you along the right path.

Framework Behind Stepparent Adoption in California

Stepparent adoption in California has its own legal framework that needs to be studied carefully before any plea is made. In the event that a nonparent individual is pleading for child custody rights, he/she must have clear evidence that signifies how letting the child be raised by the biological parents can have a detrimental effect on the child. Adoption courts in California typically encourage biological parents to raise their own children so it is crucial to have a strong basis for your plea.

A factor that can boost the probability of success in litigation is if you are able to display evidence that shows you have already taken up certain child-rearing responsibilities. Proving to the court that you can offer a child a stable and productive environment, conducive to the growth of the child, will hold you in good stead during California hearings.
