Arlington Attorney Ready To Help You With Adult Adoption

The phrase "adult adoption" takes many people by surprise. In fact, adoption after age 18 is fairly common, particularly in situations such as these:

  • Obstacles have stood in the way of adoption of a foster child, stepchild or grandchild despite the existence of a well-established parental relationship; now that soon-to-be son or daughter is 18 and nothing stands in the way anymore. Perhaps a birth parent or Child Protective Services (CPS) put up roadblocks. With the age of majority comes the young person's freedom to consent to his or her own adoption. The parental rights of a birth parent are no longer in the way.
  • A caregiver of a disabled or elderly person is not a relative, but has become as close as a son or daughter. To make the family relationship official, the older person proposes and the young person agrees to an adoption. This can be especially satisfying when the older person has no children or the caregiver has no parents, or both. Whatever the circumstances, an adult adoption can be the way to go if both parties want it and no obstacles remain.
