Missouri, Illinois and Kansas Step-Parent Adoption Attorneys

The legal process of adoption can be confusing. Making the wrong decisions can lead to unnecessary delays or denials, so many parents are unsure of how to proceed. The best way to take action is to hire an experienced attorney.

At Stange Law Firm, PC, we provide enthusiastic and effective legal counsel to parents in both step-parent adoptions and agency adoptions. We handle the paperwork involved, making sure that technical legal rules are followed exactly.

We offer convenient office locations in Missouri and Illinois and handle many different legal matters for our clients:

  • Step-parent adoptions: We often handle step-parent adoptions. Recognizing that each family is different, we view step-parent adoptions as a chance for a child to form a significant, legally-recognized relationship with a new father figure.
  • Agency adoptions: We represent biological and adoptive parents in inter-family adoptions, helping families bring children into their lives.
  • Grandparent adoptions: When biological parents are unable to care for their children, grandparents sometimes step in. Many seek guardianships or conservatorships. They may also successfully pursue grandparent adoptions.
