Adopting a Child in Utah
The court must find that an adoption is in the best interest of the child in order for it to be granted. We can represent you in private, third-party adoptions. In this type of adoption, unrelated third parties adopt a child whose biological parents have signed away their parental rights.
Stepparent adoptions often take place in blended families. If you are a stepparent who wishes to establish legal rights to a child, we can draft a voluntary relinquishment of parental rights for the estranged biological parent to sign. The estranged parent's rights must be terminated before the adoption can proceed. We can help you if you cannot get the estranged parent's signature.
If you are planning to adopt, contact a lawyer who knows the state laws and courts. Stavros Law, P.C., is ready to assist you and answer your questions about adoption.
