Helping Step-Parents and Relatives Adopt Children
At Manassau Law Offices, we represent grandparents, step parents, aunts, uncles and other relatives looking to adopt a child from their family. The first step we take is determining whether or not the biological parent will allow their rights to be terminated, which would release them from any financial obligations, such as child support.
