Stepparent adoptions generally occur when a step-parent wants to adopt a child because the biological parent has not supported the child or been actively involved in the child’s life. In this case, the absent parent must relinquish his or her parental rights or have them terminated by the court. Through the adoption process, the step-parent becomes the legal parent of the child. The step-parent will then have all the responsibilities, obligations, and rights that a biological parent would have.
