Experienced Guidance For Stepparent Adoptions

Stepparents are often important people in children's lives. In some situations, they can even end up as one of a child's primary parental figures. In these situations, you may want to consider stepparent adoption. The legal process can be anywhere from very straightforward to extremely complex, depending on individual circumstances. No matter what the situation, you can benefit from having an experienced attorney on your side.

At the Law Office of Stephen J. Kecskes, I provide quality legal services to clients throughout Virginia Beach. I have been committed to finding solutions to family law matters as efficiently and stress-free as possible. You can count on me to provide ethical, honest and straightforward representation.

Birth Parent Location And Consent

A birth parent of a child has rights, even if they are not involved in a child's life. Therefore, it is important to make a diligent effort to locate him or her and obtain their written consent to the adoption. In many cases, however, this can be the most complex part of the adoption process.

With more than 30 years of family law experience, I have the knowledge and skill necessary to tackle the task of obtaining birth parent consent. I will use all resources at my disposal to locate and serve notice of the adoption proceeding to the birth parent. If they cannot be located, or do not consent to the adoption, I will fight for your rights and your child's best interests with the department of social services and in court.
