There are two types of adoptions: independent adoptions and step-parent adoptions. Famularo & Associates can assist you in your step-parent adoption needs. A step-parent adoption is one where the spouse of one of the natural parents adopts the child. Prior to the adoption process, the parental rights of the other natural parent must be terminated. Essentially, an adoption proceeding is two lawsuits in one: termination of parental rights and the adoption process. In Riverside County, California, the entire process from start to finish takes about six months. If you have any questions about an adoption proceeding, and you live in the Temecula area, please contact the Adoption Attorneys, Famularo & Associates at (951) 816-9543, for your free consultation.
