Family Law Adoption Attorneys in DuPage County

When a couple has divorced in Illinois and decides to remarry, on occasion they will want a new spouse to have the legal rights and responsibilities to adopt any children they had from their previous marriage. This usually happens when one of the parents petitions the other parent of the child, to give up their parental rights by consenting to the adoption. However, in some cases, consent is not always needed if there is any evidence that a parent is unfit for the child.

The law firm of Stock, Carlson, Oldfield and McGrath LLC in Wheaton, Illinois, can help parents and potential step-parents with the adoption process. Our attorneys have over 40 years of legal experience, and we are highly skilled adoption attorneys that want what's best for our clients' families.

Experienced Representation for Step-Parent Adoption

Our attorneys, at Stock, Carlson, Oldfield and McGrath, understand that adoption can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a couple. It can also be a challenge without proper legal counsel. Some of the reasons why adoption may be warranted could involve abandonment or lack of interest in a child's upbringing by one of the biological parents. Generally, when this happens, the custodial parent may want to serve papers to the other natural parent of the child, in order to get consent for an adoption, should a new spouse want to have legal rights as the step-parent.

Our team, of knowledgeable attorneys, is experienced with guiding our clients through the adoption process and explaining the circumstances surrounding it, including the new spouse's financial responsibility and making important decisions on behalf of the adopted child.

For parents who may have had children together but were never married, the biological father still has rights to the child.
