  • What is Adoption?

    Adoption is the legal process in which the rights of a child toward their biological parents are terminated and replaced with new rights and obligations created between the child and the adoptive parents.

    When some people think of adoption, they think of international adoptions. However, adoptions often happen domestically. There are a number of different types of adoptions. For example, step-parent adoptions, grandparent adoptions, adult adoptions, etc.

    Adoption is made up of two parts. The first part is terminating the parental rights and the second is having the adoption granted.
