One of the most common forms of adoption is stepparent adoption. Grandparent adoption is not far behind. As with any adoption, the reasons behind it are as unique as the individuals involved. Regardless of whether you are seeking to adopt a child or if you want to dispute the adoption of your child, the lawyers at Vacanti Shattuck may be able to help. Contact us to speak with a member of our Omaha, Nebraska, firm.

Stepparent and Grandparent Adoptions

Adoption is a popular way for families to grow, but it also can be a source of contention if one parent does not wish to relinquish parental rights. Additionally, there are times when dads may not be aware they have children, and their father’s rights are disregarded.

At Vacanti Shattuck, we specialize in family law matters. We understand the tangible and intangible benefits as well as the social and psychological factors of every family member bearing the same last name. We assist with every step of adopting children.

Paternity and Fathers’ Rights Concerns

Regularly, our family law attorneys work through the adoption process with stepparents as well as grandparents, making sure the paperwork is completed correctly and on time. Our firm also represent fathers who wish to settle paternity matters, protect their custody and visitation rights or contest an adoption.

When you choose Vacanti Shattuck, you choose experienced family law representation. We practice family law exclusively with no other legal areas distracting our focus from helping you. We know family law issues are often emotionally charged. We will work diligently to guide you through the process as quickly and as calmly as possible while protecting your parental rights.
