Guiding You Through Step Parent Adoption in Arkansas

While the thought of expanding your family through adoption can be very exciting, it is very important to make sure everything is handled properly to avoid any difficulties. If you are considering adoption, it is in your best interest to discuss your situation with an experienced family law attorney.

I'm a Little Rock adoption attorney who handles cases throughout Arkansas. I represent step parents, grandparents and other family members and non-family members in adoption proceedings. Throughout the entire process, you can count on me to provide you with sound legal advice and high-quality personal service.

Avoiding common adoption difficulties can be as simple as working with a knowledgeable adoption lawyer. To discuss your adoption matter with me, call me at 501-376-0400 or toll free 888-594-6145.

Step Parent Adoptions

For a step parent adoption, there has to be consent from the mother and father of the child. However, if one parent has failed to have adequate contact or support the child for a period of at least one year, this requirement may be waved. Also, any step parent seeking to adopt must submit to a criminal background check and a Department of Human Services background check.

Out of Family Adoptions

Third party or out of family adoptions are more complicated and require a background check as well as a study. This is in addition to the requirements of step parent adoptions.
