Step-parent adoptions can be an emotional and tricky process. For a non-biological parent to adopt a child, the biological parent or parents must first give up all of their parental rights to the child including but not limited to visitation and decision making.
Unless a biological parent agrees to relinquish his or her rights to the child, it can be difficult to have someone rights terminated. Situations such as abandonment, abuse, or an unhealthy environment could possibly be grounds for terminating a biological parent’s rights.
