YOUR EXPERIENCED FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS
CAN AN ADULT BE ADOPTED BY ANOTHER ADULT?
Adult Adoptions in Arizona are a unique process and Arizona courts do finalize adult adoptions. The adoption of an adult is very fact-driven. The Court has to have the right information at the right time to make your adult adoption a success. If you are considering an adult adoption, there are many reasons the adult adoption process may be important in your life, such as: estate planning, legalizing an existing relationship, like your relationship with a step-child or other relative you care for, or for personal reasons that are specific to your life, like ensuring access to medical records or other important information. Peaceful Family Law can represent you through your adult adoption proceeding from start to finish.
