There is a good chance if you get divorced and have children that step-parents will be a part of your future. It's not all bad, but emotions can run high.
We prefer the word bonus-parent instead of step-parent.
We discuss the story from E-News about Kate Hudson and their podcast called Sibling Revelry where they talk about the drama surrounding the stepbrothers and sisters and step-parents in their lives.
We answer many of the common questions that we hear as attorneys about step-parents. If the child is safe most courts are going to encourage building a relationship with their bonus family. Even though emotions about it may run hot, we encourage people to get counseling and focus on co-parenting.
When do people introduce children to a possible new spouse. We talk about the options and offer our insights.
In the majority of our cases when step-parents come into the picture it's a good thing.
We talk about TPR, which is the termination of parental rights and how that will lead to step-parent adoptions. These cases can be some of the most meaningful cases for our attorneys. We don't get a lot of happy days in court but step-parent adoptions are very special.
