We can guide you with the adoption of a child in your family.
If the parents of a niece, nephew, sibling, cousin, or another family member of yours cannot take care of their child, they may still want the new parent to be a member of the family. If you have decided to step forward and adopt a member of your nonimmediate family, the process can be as rewarding as it is challenging.
These adoptions are known as relative adoptions, and there are many benefits of this type of adoption, including:
- Children can inherit assets without any additional legal action.
- The new parents can establish legal standing as the guardian to prevent any litigation in the future.
- The new parents can make important decisions about the child, including regarding the way they are raised and their education and medical care.
- The child can benefit from having a sense of stability in their new household.
