For this #FamilyFriday article, the attorneys at ERA Law Group, LLC want to talk about adoption. Adoption is the legal process of creating a parent and child relationship. Adoption can take place in many forms. For example, a stepparent may be adopting their partner’s child or perhaps grandparents are looking to adopt a grandchild. Many people tend to think of adoption involving a minor child but don’t know that adults can also be adopted. Establishing the parent/child relationship is important on an emotional level but also serves a legal and financial purpose.
