Stepparent Adoptions

Stepparent adoptions can be emotional as well as very satisfying for the entire family.  Stepparent adoptions insure the stepparent is recognized by law as a legal parent.  This often  includes the child taking the surname of the adoptive parent. Once the adoption is complete, the legal relationship between the adoptive parent and the child is the same as that between the biological parent and the child, including the right to inherit from each other.
