New Year may be a good time to start stepparent adoption process

Last week, this blog shared an article on the stepparent adoption process. There are a number of legal factors that must be satisfied for a person to adopt the child of their spouse, and meeting those requirements can become a lengthy and sometimes difficult process. Individuals who are interested in beginning the stepparent adoption process in the New Year are invited to contact the firm to learn more about it.

A review of the stepparent adoption process

When individuals divorce and remarry, they bring together families that may have already taken form. For example, a divorced North Carolina mother of two may choose to marry a divorced father of one, and once they wed the merging of their lives creates a blended family. The father becomes a stepparent to his wife's two kids and the mother becomes a stepparent to her husband's child.

Is there a max amount of child support that I will have to pay?

Child support is an important obligation between a noncustodial parent and their child. In North Carolina, a parent may be subject to the state's child support guidelines if they divorce, separate or otherwise do not maintain a shared household with their child's other parent. Although there are a number of factors that can modify the guideline recommendations for child support, a parent's income is often a determining factor in the amount of money they will be obligated to provide to their child.

How can the Hague Convention influence my international adoption?

When choosing to grow their families through adoption, some North Carolina residents decide to look beyond the borders of the United States for the children they will raise and love. International adoptions are not uncommon but can be lengthy, difficult processes to complete. One factor that can influence an international adoption is whether the nation from which the adoptive parents wish to choose a child is a member of the Hague Convention.
