adoptionGoing through a Tacoma divorce is an earth shattering experience that can leave you emotionally exhausted, especially when children are involved.

How Does Stepparent Adoption Work? Adoption Attorneys in Tacoma Explain

Stepparent adoption is arguably one of the most common forms of adoption in Washington State. Simply put, this is when a parent relinquishes their parental rights so that the other parent’s new partner can legally adopt the child. Our Tacoma adoption attorneys will help you undertake this process, so it can be handled with legal finesses and limited aggravation.

If all parties agree to this adoption then the process goes through a series of uncomplicated steps to achieve the goal. However, if the biological parent is not willing to relinquish their parental rights, a forced termination might be possible. In some circumstances it is simply not possible for Tacoma adoption lawyers to get the court to approve the termination of someone’s parental rights.

"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance. She made a really daunting task for me less fearful, given such grim circumstances. I am forever grateful for Jason and the Team of Attorneys."
