How to Legally Adopt Your Stepchild

Protect your family through stepparent adoptions in Woodbridge, VA

Few things are as sacred under the law as a parent's rights regarding their children. While this can help to strengthen the family unit, it can also lead to heartache in nontraditional or blended families.

The fact that you've raised your partner's child, dried their tears and attended their games and recitals means little in the eyes of the law. Only becoming your child's legal parent can protect them from the whims of a distant or toxic birth parent. Sit down with a stepparent adoption lawyer at the Law Office of Alan K.
