Second/stepparent adoptions are a joyful, positive part of our practice. We are honored to be play a role in helping families create a home environment where children are put first by loving parents.
There is nothing more gratifying than to witness a true family bond develop between a parent and child. Whether this relationship was formalized through second parent adoption involving same-sex couples or through marrying someone who has children from a previous relationship, adoptive parents are an integral part of a child's life.
There are occasions where a stepparent will wish to become the legal, adoptive parent of their stepchildren. However, this is not the only reason for becoming an adoptive parent. For same-sex couples, there may be a need for the parent to adopt their child in a second parent adoption. When both parents are legally the parents of the children at issue, the legal ramifications are many. Adoptive parents can carry children on their health insurance, participate in important decisions about the children’s lives, and have the same legal rights as any legal parent. Adoptive children are, from a legal standpoint, in the same position as natural-born children, and therefore stand to inherit from their adoptive parents.
At Mundahl Law, we strive to create the best possible environment for children, and are pleased and proud to be able to offer our services to stepparents and same sex parents who wish to become the legally adoptive parents of the children who are such an important part of their lives.
