The California Adoption Process

While adoption is a deeply personal experience, it is also a comprehensive legal process. In California, the adoption process establishes a legal parent-child relationship between the child and an individual or couple who are not birth parents. Once the adoption process is finalized, adoptive parents are granted the same rights and responsibilities as in any parent-child relationship. No matter what your adoption needs or goals may be, you can be confident that our family law attorneys can guide you step-by-step through the process

Our legal team provides personalized assistance for all types of adoption:

  • Stepparents looking to adopt a spouse's child
  • Domestic partner adoptions
  • Adoption by individuals and couples
  • International adoptions
  • "Re-adoption" for parents of foreign child to comply with U.S. laws
  • Independent adoptions

When assisting clients through the adoption process, our lawyers make it a point to fully educate clients about their rights under California law and to protect them at all stages. We also ensure that all necessary legal requirements and forms are completed accurately and with respect to any deadlines. If you are considering adoption, we can assist you!
