We can help you take the necessary measures to gain the other biological parent’s consent to terminate parental rights. If you do not know how to contact the other biological parent, we can help you with putative registry searches and explore other options to gain an uncontested termination. If the other biological parent cannot be located, we will explain your options and help you through the process of completing the step-parent adoption.
