In order for a child to be fully integrated into their new family, step parents may feel it necessary to adopt their step child as they may feel it is in their step child’s best interests. Step parent adoption may be the best solution for a child, but there are also other options which we can advise on, which give the step parent legal status and recognition of their involvement with their step child, whilst enabling the child’s relationship with the non-resident birth parent to continue, for example, Special Guardianship or Parental Responsibility.
Our team of specialist family lawyers can advise you on these sensitive and complex areas of law.
