Important information about filing an adoption in Virginia.

A stepparent adoption in Virginia can be a fairly simple process, and it can be a wonderful step to take to unit the family unit. When the adoption is completed, the child will have the following benefits:
 
> New name is established (if desired)
> New birth certificate
> Two legal parents active in the child’s life
> Ability to inherit from adoptive parent
 
The child will have a relationship with the adoptive parent that is the same as if the child were born to the stepparent. The child’s new birth certificate will show the child’s new name and will have the adoptive parent and the natural parent listed as the child’s mother and father.
 
If your matter is complex, a local adoption attorney can answer any legal questions you may have. Review the following fact check which provides a general guideline as to whether you can do your own adoption:
 

Who can adopt.

> Stepmother, or
> Stepfather
A stepparent in Virginia can file to adopt his or her step child. The stepparent must be legally married to the child’s parent.
 
In some states, a domestic partnership and same-sex marriages may also adopt under the step parent adoption laws.

Parental Rights

Both the biological father and the biological mother have parental rights to the child. In every adoption, the absent or consenting parents parental rights will have to be terminated.
 
Some of the common grounds for termination of parental rights are:
 
> Abandonment of the child
> Lack of financial support
> Sustained lack of contact
> Abuse or neglect of minor children
> Putative or presumptive father is not the bio-father

Child’s consent

In Virginia, if the child is over 12 years of age, the child will be required to sign a consent to the adoption.

Where to file

You will file your step parent adoption documents in the court located in the county where you reside. If you are in the military, you have the option to file in your home-state of record.
 
We have listed the address for some of the Virginia Courts below.
