Adopting a child is an exciting event for a family. However, the circumstances surrounding an adoption vary with each family. You may be a step-parent wanting to adopt a child that you have raised and consider to be “your own”. You may be married to a same-sex spouse and want to ensure that both parents have full legal rights and protections in a system that is slowly adjusting to a new normal. Regardless of your situation it is important for all parties to know the legal implications of adopting a child.
Wyoming also allows for adoptions without the consent of a biological parent in certain situations. Whether you are the parent trying to have a child adopted or you are the parent whose child may be adopted without your consent, our attorneys can help you throughout the process.
