Experienced Central Illinois Adoption Attorneys
Adoption is a legal process through which a child’s legal rights and duties toward their natural parent are terminated and similar rights and duties toward their adoptive parents are substituted. Adoption includes the legal right to inherit and obligates the adoptive parents to support the adoptive child. Children are most commonly adopted by stepparents, grandparents and other family members, though, adoptions also commonly occur where the adoptive parents are unrelated to the adoptive child.
