Couple signing adoption formsThe adoption attorneys at Family Law Partners have 45+ years of combined experience in handling adoption and guardianship cases. The adoption process is complex and there are a lot of procedural requirements that must be met before an adoption can be finalized.

Missouri Adoptions by Relatives & Non-Relatives

There are two categories of adoptions: adoptions by relatives and adoptions by non-relatives.

  • Adoptions by relatives are often by a step-parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, or other family member.
  • Adoptions by non-relatives typically involve a public or private agency or some other third independent party.

Once an adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents will have all of the rights and responsibilities any biological parent would.
