For Step Parents

step parent adoption

You’ve been to all the soccer games and school plays. You’ve been through the sleepless nights, and you’ve enjoyed all the bursts of joyful laughter that parenthood has to offer. Are you ready to adopt your partner’s children? For step parents, the legal process of adoption can increase harmony in your family and peace of mind. We at Adoption Arkansas want to be your guide as you navigate the legal terrain of adoption.

How is step parent adoption different?

As a step-parent, you are not required to go through the home visit process. This is one reason that a step parent adoption can be much less expensive than other forms of adoption. It’s still a big step, and it’s important to get it right.

Adopting your stepchild will mean that you are beginning a lifelong legal relationship. You and your spouse should also know that in order for you to adopt, the biological parent outside of your marriage will have to have his or her parental rights terminated. We are here to answer any questions you might have about any stage of this process.

The unity of your home is at the core of our mission as your legal representative in the adoption of your stepchild. We also strive to keep your costs as low as possible, while providing expert legal service. For more information call us any time at 479-599-8677 or email us at
