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 overwhelming. 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.
