Adopting a stepchild can be complicated. There are a number of qualifications a person must meet in order to legally adopt a stepchild in the state of Utah. It is a process that may take some time and dedication. When all parties consent to the adoption, the process is less difficult. When one, or more, parties do have an issue it can result in litigation and time in court. In all situations, what is best for the child should determine the legal guardians.
Each stepparent adoption scenario varies. While some are fairly straightforward, other situations require special legal attention to manage and handle the case properly; for example, when the non-custodial parent challenges the adoption.
