Adoption of a Foster Child or Stepchild

Adoption can be a long and expensive process. Additional legal requirements apply when the child you wish to adopt is a foster child or a stepchild. Some of these requirements are beneficial to you, while others make the adoption more difficult. Adoption law varies somewhat from state to state.
