Adult adoptions can be very satisfying - perhaps you have wanted to do a stepparent adoption for years, but have been unable to get the consent you needed to make that happen. Once the adoptee is an adult, no consent is required, so the stepparent adoption can finally happen. Or perhaps you want to formalize a relationship with someone who has always been like a parent or a child to you. Adult adoption can make that happen.
Although adult adoption can be relatively simple to accomplish, there are serious permanent implications to the creation and termination of relationships that happens with any adoption. Because of that, it is a good idea to have an adoption attorney help you with the process. It is important to consider if there are reasons not to do an adult adoption, or not to do one at this time. It is also important to have the right people signing the right documents in the right places so you end up with the relationships that you were intending to end up with.
Representation is valuable in adult adoptions, but it tends not to be expensive.
