Adoption is a beautiful and fulfilling gift; however, there are legal formalities that must be adhered to in order to properly conclude an adoption in South Carolina. The adoptive parent must understand that they are taking on the permanent rights and legal responsibilities of a natural parent. If you are seeking to extinguish the parental rights of a mother or father who is no longer active in the life of the child or children, there are appropriate steps that must be taken to avoid future complications.
Generally speaking, there are two kinds of adoptions. Adoption by a step parent, Aunt, Uncle, or Grandparent is known as an in family adoption. Another option is adoption through an agency.
Around our law office we like to call adoption cases, “Happy Law.” Most situations revolve around placing a child or children in an environment that gives them the best opportunity for success and fulfillment in life!
We would love to help you through the adoption process!
