Types of Adoption
Adoption is the legal process that grants legal responsibility for a minor child to an adult who is not the biological parent of the child.
There are two primary types of adoption:
- Step-parent adoption: This is when a parent remarries and the new spouse wishes to adopt an existing child as their own dependent.
- Third-party adoption: The more traditional adoption process, this occurs when a child is brought into a new home without any known parents.
An adoption can be considered contested or uncontested. A contested adoption occurs when a biological parent or other legal caregiver objects to the court granting the adoption. An uncontested adoption means that no parent or legal caregiver opposes the adoption taking place.
