Stepparent Adoption



What we do

We prepare the documents in which a stepparent files a petition with the court to adopt his/her stepchild while the spouse/birth parent retains his or her custody and control of the child with the biological father or mother consenting to the adoption. This requirement may be waived in certain cases of mental deficiency, imprisonment or abandonment. In Oregon, a paralegal may draw up an adoption petition and People Paralegal has years of experience in this field and will efficiently walk you through the process.   

We save you money


We understand the strain an adoption may have on your pocketbook, and that is why we offer affordable, flat-rate document preparation services.  No hidden fees.  We want to help you achieve your goals to complete your family without the high costs of attorneys. An adoption attorney may become necessary to complete the process if the adoption becomes contested by a biological parent. 

Let us simplify it for you


People Paralegal has years of experience in preparing and filing for stepparent adoptions and has helped many families in Oregon take the final steps to complete their new families.  There are several forms involved and it is a bit of a process, but we strive to make this as easy as possible for you. Afterall, it is a beautiful union of families and it should be an effortless and joyous event.


Our fee is a flat $575 for all documents to be filed with the court.  Court filing fees for adoption are not included.
