St. Louis Adoption Attorney

Located in Chesterfield, Serving St. Charles and Greater St. Louis Area

The St. Louis family law 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. 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. In comparison, adoptions by non-relatives typically involve a public or private agency or some other third independent party. Once the adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents will have all of the rights and responsibilities any biological parent would.

If you are interested in adopting, we invite you to contact our firm to discuss which adoption avenue is best suited for you.

Common Types of Adoptions

Our firm can represent clients in the following types of adoptions:

  • Grandparent or relative adoptions – most often occurring because a parent’s absence or unsuitability to raise their children, we can help uphold your best interests.
  • Contested adoptions – these often require a skilled litigator with trial experience who can present your case to a divorce court in a manner that yields the best possible outcome.
  • Step-parent adoptions – in order for these to be successful, the individual carrying parental rights has to either waive them or be deemed unfit by a court of law.
