Adding a new member to your family should be a joyous occasion.  The legal issues and procedures associated with such a process can often be over whelming.  Richard E. Griffith is adopted and is familiar with both the emotional and legal issues associated with adoptions.  He handles  intra-family adoptions for step-parents and grandparents.  In this type of adoption, one parent remarries and a step parent seeks to adopt or a grandparent seeks adoption for various reasons. In undertaking stepparent adoptions, one either needs the consent of the biological parents or to terminate parental rights, which is a difficult process.  In most termination cases we handle, the biological parent hasn’t paid child support or communicated with the child in more than six months.  Adoption is a life changing experience for both the child(ren) and the individual adopting.  Richard E. Griffith will guide you through this process and explain all legal issues in a way you can understand.
