Adoption is a legal procedure governed by the Probate Court, by which a child is adopted by a new mother or father. Once the adoption is complete, for all legal purposes, the new mother or father are the child’s parents, rather than the natural birth parent(s). The natural birth parents would lose their status as parent in a completed adoption.

The most common adoptions are grandparent adoptions or step-parent adoptions. The Probate Court requires that a Home Study be done of the prospective parent(s), with the cost of the study paid by the applicant. The natural birth parent(s) must consent to any adoption, in most cases.

A parent or parents commonly choose to adopt a child for various reasons, including, but not limited to:

  • To provide additional stability in a Step-parent adoption in which the biological parent (often the father) relinquishes his parental rights, and the step-father is willing to legally assume the responsibility. Consent by biological father may or may not be required, depending on the facts of the case.

  • To provide additional stability a Grandparent adoption in which both (generally) biological parents relinquish their parental rights, and the grandparent(s) are willing to legally assume the responsibility for the adopted children.
