Adoption and Divorce
Adoptions frequently occur in the aftermath of divorce, with some stepparents seeking to solidify their parental role by navigating the adoption process. While the noncustodial parent is sometimes willing to cooperate, most adoptions related to divorce and legal separations are incredibly complicated. Further complications can arise if a stepparent seeks custody or visitation of non-biological children after divorcing the biological parent. Mary Beth can help you secure a custody arrangement that is in the best interest of both you and the child you wish to adopt.
