A family is no longer simply defined as a mother, father and child. It is truly defined by the manner in which people interact, and the level of care they provide to children and loved ones.
At my office, I help people obtain legal status as a family through adoptions. In some cases, I am helping couples who cannot have children biologically complete their families through private adoptions or international adoptions. In others, I am working with families whose lives have been changed by divorces, remarriages and perhaps the death of a loved one.
No matter what situation you are experiencing, I can guide you through the adoption process in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas of the state. I offer more than 35 years of experience as a family lawyer and a willingness to work with you directly to find options that work for you and your loved ones.
Grandparent And Stepparent Adoptions
Many families throughout Oklahoma have unique arrangements. Extended family members often take on the role of primary caregiver for children whose biological parents are no longer available to provide such care and guidance. This may be the result of a biological parent passing away, or the biological parent may be unable to provide a safe environment for the child.
Unfortunately, many of the caregivers who take over guardianship responsibilities do so unofficially. They lack the legal status to be considered the child's parent under the law, and it can greatly influence their ability to provide adequate care.
Pursuing an adoption provides a means to legally provide the child with a stable and healthy family environment.
