3 tips for adopting your stepchild in Nebraska

As someone pursuing adoption of a stepchild, you want the process to go as smoothly as possible. Adopting your stepchild is a meaningful step in your life. It formalizes the relationship you already have, gives you legal rights and strengthens your family unit. Unfortunately, this does not mean the adoption process is free of complications and stresses.

What to expect during an adoption home study

Adoption is a big responsibility, and as such, there are a number of requirements and screenings prospective parents must satisfy in order to complete the process. One of the most important of these is the home study. As the name suggests, this procedure involves an official - usually a social worker or child welfare official - visiting your home to profile your lifestyle and home environment. Regardless of what kind of adoption you are initiating, this is a requirement, and you should know what to expect.

Can The State Save Child Welfare Services?

State Senator Mark Kolterman of Seward sponsored the Child Welfare Services Preservation Act (LB975). The bill that would protect faith-based child placement agencies from losing funding or other adverse actions for declining to work with specific families based on the organizations' religious beliefs.

Common legal needs during and after adoption

When many people think of the Nebraska family courts, they think about divorces, custody battles, domestic violence or even child support, but the family courts also handle adoption issues and proceedings. Whether you are wanting to expand your family by adopting, attempting a step-parent adoption or are a birth parent trying to facilitate an adoption, a family law attorney familiar with these kinds of cases can be an asset at every step.
