Step Parent and Second Parent Rights

Step Parent and Second Parent
Rights

Many families find themselves parenting, raising and loving children who are biologically and legally related to partners from prior relationships. Parents in this role may desire that their legal status match the value of their actual critical role in a child's life. Securing stepparent parental rights can be critical for a child's legal security, emotional well-being, financial future, and to equalize status among siblings raised in the same home. I would be happy to discuss whether your situation lends itself to establishing parental relationships with children in your care.
