Our Adoption Attorneys in Everett Explain Stepparent Adoption

One of the most common situations for an adoption in Washington is when a stepparent conducts an adoption of a spouse’s child. In such cases, one biological parent relinquishes their parental rights, making it possible for their ex-spouse’s new partner to adopt the child and gain parental rights of their own. This process can be sensitive, and our Everett adoption attorneys can guide your actions to avoid conflict and aggravation.

The process for this type of Everett adoption is simple if both parties agree to the action. In situations where a parent does not want to give up their parental rights, it might be possible to pursue a forced termination in Everett court. However, sometimes it is not possible for our Everett adoption lawyers to successfully garner such an action.
