Step-parent adoptions are common when one biological parent is willing to give up parental rights to the stepparent. After adoption, the stepparent has all rights and responsibilities of the biological parent. In stepparent adoptions, as with all other adoptions, if the child is 12 years of age or older, the child must consent to the adoption and must be interviewed before signing the consent. The court may dispense with the minor’s consent to the adoption upon a finding it is in the best interest of the minor.
