Helping You Expand Your Family And Protect Your Loved Ones Through Adoption

We understand that your decision to adopt your stepchild was likely based on several reasons — love, protection, etc. Our founder and managing lawyer Eric J. Tatum is very knowledgeable of the laws surrounding stepparent adoption in Georgia, and he can skillfully guide you through the legal process.

Our clients often come to us with questions about adopting stepchildren, as well as the benefits in doing so. Stepparent adoption gives stepparents full financial and legal responsibility of their stepchildren. After the adoption is complete, a stepparent can:

  • Authorize medical care and avoid medical insurance coverage issues
  • Provide benefits
  • Legally indicate custody to obtain passports
  • Designate the stepchild as a beneficiary in his or her estate plan

While not always, it is common for home studies to be required in Georgia adoptions. We will help you understand what to expect and how the study fits into your adoption process.

Let us help you get started with your stepparent adoption today. We urge you to consult The Law Offices of Eric J. Tatum, PLLC, today to learn more about the Georgia stepparent adoption process and to answer your questions.
