We can help with the formal adult adoption process.
Adult adoptions refer to the legal process where one adult legally adopts another adult, after the consent of both parties has been acquired. Unlike when you adopt a child, adult adoptions typically do not involve transferring parental rights and responsibilities because the adopted person is usually already legally responsible for themselves.
There are many reasons adult adoptions occur. For example, many people move forward with adult adoptions to formalize a pre-existing parent-child relationship or to establish legal inheritance rights. Others finalize the adult adoption process to provide emotional or financial support. In other cases, an adult may wish to be adopted by a close friend or mentor who has filled the role of a parent throughout their life.
To go through with an adult adoption, it is important to consult with an experienced adoption attorney beforehand. At Hildebrand Law Office, P.C., we handle adult adoptions and can help you adopt another individual who has meaning in your life.
