The Stepparent Adoption Process

When the process for stepparent adoption begins, the child’s legal parent will relinquish his or her parental rights. Each parent will need to coordinate with the social worker to complete all of the legal paperwork involve. Because I understand the adoption process and can navigate through the court system, I can expedite the adoption for you.

These are some of the benefits of having a Westlake Village family law attorney:

  • I handle all of the critical legal matters for your family, and I go above and beyond to ease the transition.
  • I take care of the complicated legal paperwork for you so that you don’t have to worry about figuring it out on your own.
  • I can keep you informed of your rights as a father or mother so that you know what you are entitled to and what your responsibilities are for caring for the child.
  • I have achieved tremendous success for my clients over the years and am prepared to bring the evidence to court if necessary.

Your adoption needs will be unique from all others because your family will have varying circumstances. As a seasoned Westlake Village family law attorney, I am widely respected for the results I have been able to achieve for my clients. These are the types of cases that need compassion and care, as well as sharp and intelligent insight.

Happy Clients

  • In a very difficult time in my life, Mr. Graff provided excellent service to me.

    “In a very difficult time in my life, Mr. Graff provided excellent service to me. Patient with my process, he was always prompt to return my calls, and gave me realistic advice. While other lawyers might be evasive in an effort to prolong the process (hence their fees), Mr. Graff was straightforward and eager to conclude the proceedings quickly in an effort to minimize my pain.”


  • I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”

    Former Client

  • I felt that he always had my best interest in mind!

    “I selected Jeff to represent me because he specialized divorce cases and had worked with the Ventura County judges for many years. He was very patient with me as dealt with the emotions of getting a divorce after a 19-year marriage, and helped me through the terrible stress of facing my ex-spouse and being in the courtroom. He gave me very good advice on how to manage the property settlement, especially on when I should capitulate and when I should hold my ground. I felt that he always had my best interest in mind (rather than just collecting his fee) and worked diligently to bring the case to a fair conclusion.”
