3 Main Types of Adoptions

In New Jersey there are generally three main types of adoptions:

  1. Private adoptions—also known as independent adoptions, private adoptions are generally coordinated between the birth parents and prospective adoptive parents. During this type of adoption, our NJ adoption attorneys can ensure that the entire process goes smoothly and efficiently.
  2. Step-parent adoptions—if you are a step-parent who is seeking to adopt, our NJ adoption attorneys, can assist you in overcoming any legal obstacles you may encounter. Take note that termination of parental rights is required prior to a step-parent adoption.
  3. Grandparent or relative adoptions—if you are a grandparent or relative who is trying to adopt a child, we can help you pursue your adoption goals. Even if you are already the child's custodial guardian, before you can adopt, the biological parent's rights must be terminated.
