Adoption Law in South Carolina
Every state has its own unique adoption laws. Those in South Carolina feature many nuances. If you want to adopt here, you’ll need to:
- Obtain an approval from the adoption professional you work with from the state
- Meet the requirements for the type of adoption you’re trying to secure
- Receive approval following a home study
- Provide recent financial records
By law, children over 14 years of age must approve any adoption. Anyone in South Carolina can adopt a child, regardless of their marital status. Someone who has been convicted of a felony may be allowed to adopt, but they must undergo a court review with a social worker.
Understanding your legal rights as an adoptive parent can be complicated. What happens if birth parents want to get in touch with the child? Are you responsible for birth parent expenses? Understanding what’s expected of you before the process gets underway will make for a smoother adoption. An attorney can explain your rights and those of the birth parents. They can also address what happens in the case of a spouse’s death or divorce if you’re married.
A lawyer will make the process easier and put your mind at ease. Whether you’re adopting a child or giving one up for adoption, you want your rights protected. Fortunately, Lauren Taylor can protect them.
