Common Types of Adoptions
Although stepparents often fulfill parental duties at the inception of their relationship with their stepchildren, their legal relationship is not necessarily secure. The emotional and legal benefits of completing a stepparent adoption are numerous, and KLG Law can help you complete the process.
Under New York State law, if you are not the biological parent of a child, you do not necessarily have any legal relationship with that child. For LGBTQ families, adoption provides definitive parental and custodial rights.
Private adoption is one of the most common ways by which families adopt children. It involves the birth parents voluntarily placing their child for adoption, and, in many cases, choosing the family who will adopt their child.
Foster Care Adoptions
Foster care adoption is the adoption of a child who is in foster care whose biological parents’ custody rights have been terminated by a court.
An open adoption is one in which the adoptive family and the birth parents maintain contact so that the birth parents may continue their relationship with their child. The extent to which the biological parents are involved with their child varies on a case-by-case basis.
