Adoption

Grow your family

Adoption can be a wonderful experience for all parties involved. It is a legal acknowledgement of the parent-child relationship and the bond that it encompasses, and typically is a turning point in the life of a child. Because of this, adoption proceedings are the happiest times in a courtroom, not only for the children and their adoptive parents, but also for the judge and the others that are present. It is not uncommon for the judge to give small gifts to the children and take pictures of the occasion.

Step-parents adoptions are the most common adoptions that we deal with at the Bolton law firm. This type of adoption is usually a simple process with immediate benefits. If you are a step-parent looking to adopt, send us a message and we will help you through the process.

If you are interested in any other type of adoption, we can also help! Let our team know about your situation and we will be more than happy to work with you.
