Parents Adopting and Adoption Law

Our lawyers help parent adoptions with a variety of adoption matters, including:

  • Co-parent adoptions

  • Interstate Adoptions

  • Parents Adopting

  • International adoptions

  • Stepparent adoptions

  • Grandparent adoptions

  • Same-sex adoptions

Stepparent Adoption

Adopting a stepchild is the most common form of adoption. A stepparent who adopts agrees to be fully responsible for his or her spouse’s child. After the stepparent adoption occurs, the noncustodial parent (the parent not living with the child) no longer has any rights.

Surrogacy Representation

Making the decision as an expectant mother to place your child up for adoption, for any reason, should be looked at as giving a cherished gift to a family. We understand the impact this adoptive process can have on so many lives and will focus our time and resources on finding a match that is in the best interest of your child. Your consultation with our adoption attorneys in Naperville IL will be kept confidential.
