are several different types of adoption available in California.
We assist in adult, independent and stepparent adoptions. The most
common is a stepparent adoption whereby a stepparent will request
to adopt his/her spouse's child or children. California now permits
registered Domestic Partners to adopt under the simplified step-parent
adoption process. When the non-custodial parent will provide his/her
consent to the adoption, all documents may be prepared for filing
with the Court, with the assistance of the County Department of Public
Social Services. In the event no consent is obtainable from the non-custodial
parent, all litigation documents may also be prepared by the office
including, but not limited to, the Petition to terminate the parental
rights of the absent parent.
