How can you adopt a stepchild?

Answer

In most cases, stepchild adoption is much like any other type of adoption. The stepparent files a petition; documents are submitted to the court indicating that the absent parent has consented to the adoption, and the court process proceeds. However, laws change from state to state so you should be familiar to which laws apply to you.
