Adoption in Utah
If you are considering adding to your family, you need to speak with a Utah lawyer familiar with the intricacies of adoption in Utah. The lawyers at Stavros Law can assist you with your adoption and answer any questions you need answered.
Families who choose to adopt a child are usually excited. In some cases, they have waited a long time for a child. Adoption presents a challenging array of legal procedures, however. To ensure the adoption process goes smoothly, you want to work with a knowledgeable family law attorney. Stavros Law can help you with the adoption of an unrelated child or a stepchild. We also assist people with the termination of a biological parent's rights. Our adoption attorneys provides compassionate, dedicated representation throughout the process.
In Utah, the court must find that an adoption is in the best interests of the child in order for it to be granted. We can represent you in private, third-party adoptions. In this type of adoption, unrelated third parties adopt a child whose biological parents have signed away their parental rights. Stepparent adoptions often take place in blended families. If you are a stepparent who wishes to establish legal rights to a child, we can draft a voluntary relinquishment of parental rights for the estranged biological parent to sign. The estranged parent's rights must be terminated before the adoption can proceed. We can help you if you cannot get the estranged parent's signature.
If you are planning to adopt, contact a lawyer who knows the state laws and and is familiar with adoption proceedings in Utah courts. Stavros Law, P.C., is ready to assist you and answer your questions about adoption.
