Often, when a couple marries and one spouse already has a child, the other spouse will wish to adopt that child. Emotionally, this serves to bring the family closer together. The adoption enhances the sense of familial unity. Practically, though, it also has legal benefits: once the child is adopted by the stepparent, the child has the right to financial support, the right to inheritance, and access to the stepparent’s health care coverage.
If you wish to petition to adopt your spouse’s child, contact Rob Curtis Counselor At Law for a consultation. We are the stepchild adoption lawyers in Gulfport, MS who bring families together.
