Partner adoptions ensure both parents equal and permanent parental rights and obligations until their child reaches adulthood . Each parent can make decisions on behalf of their child which the state of Wisconsin will recognize as legitimate.
HOW DOES PARTNER ADOPTION HAPPEN?
In Wisconsin, this special type of adoption requires a number of steps to complete. The bio/adoptive parent and the prospective adoptive parent will need to retain an attorney experienced in completing partner adoptions. Your attorney and your adoption counselor at Adoption Choice, Inc. will work together to ensure a smooth, timely process to complete the home studies, court report and forms required and will facilitate the timely filing of the petitions to obtain a court date for the hearing. There is a need for frequent communication with your attorney to properly complete the steps to ensure you are able to complete your adoption plan as soon as possible.
