We often get queries regarding step-parent adoption.
What is a Step-Family?
If you or your partner have a child/ren from an earlier relationship living with you, then you are a step-family. When a step-parent is already taking full responsibility for the day to day care of a step-child/ren, they may wish to share legal responsibility with the child/ren’s parent, their partner.
We have developed a short guide which provides information to step-families about adopting step-children.
