Minnesota Family Law Attorneys for Stepparent Adoptions

Many people marry someone who has children from a previous relationship, and they become an integral part of their stepchildren's lives.  It is so gratifying to witness a true family bond develop between a stepparent and stepchild.

There are occasions where a stepparent will wish to become the legal, adoptive parent of their stepchildren. These adoptions are a joyful, positive part of our practice. We believe we are helping create a family who puts the best interests of their children first, by creating a home environment where both parents are involved with their children's lives.

The reasons for becoming adoptive parents are many, and these issues are also faced by same-sex adoptive parents. Where both parents are legally the parents of the children at issue, the legal ramifications are many. Adoptive parents are able to 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.
