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.

  • 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.

  • Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount we paid cut down by more than half!!

    “Jeffrey handled my Family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex’s got a big child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to Jeffrey handled my family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex-wife. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex-wife had a huge child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to court for that!! Then, she started coming after us for this big child support money every month. She wouldn’t even let her kids come over to visit with us and my kids, but just wanted the money and my husband wasn’t working. My co-worker went to Jeff for her divorce and she told me to call and talk to him. I am so thankful that I called him. I talked to him and he explained everything to me. I needed that because I didn’t know what to do. My husband and I met with him in his office. Jeff and the secretary were both so nice and very professional. I completely trust them! Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount my husband pays to his ex-wife cut down by more than half!! And on top of that got the judge to make my husband’s ex let the kids come and visit with my husband, who is still hurt, and my kids. Everything worked out so much better than I thought it could. I didn’t know we had a choice and that we could go to the judge to lower the support AND let us see the kids. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who need help with family law. Very Helpful.”
