California family courts are supportive of actions that improve personal and financial stability for children, and stepparent adoption often fits these criteria very well. If you have married or remarried and want to pursue a stepparent adoption, our Orange County law firm is an excellent resource for the guidance and representation you will need.
At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, you will work with attorneys whose sole professional focus is California family law. We can assist you with all aspects of a stepparent adoption, whether you anticipate that this action will be accepted or contested by your child's biological parent.
As in all other matters of parents' rights and other family law challenges we handle, our lawyers strive for negotiated resolution and efficiency in stepparent adoptions. However, we are trial-proven litigators prepared to go the distance for you if your case calls for aggressive action to achieve your goals.
We have in-depth familiarity with the procedures and officials in courts throughout Orange County and elsewhere in Southern California. Our experience across the spectrum of paternity claims, child support enforcement actions and other relevant areas may be important assets for you.
