Often, after the finalization of a divorce within Maryland, the family’s non-biological parent will choose to seek a stepparent adoption. In certain instances, same-sex domestic partnerships may use this type of adoption as well. In Maryland, these types of (stepparent) adoptions are a fairly simple and straightforward process; provided you have the consent of the birthparents who must willing to relinquish their legal parental rights and responsibilities.

In stepparent adoption situations, many parents will agree to surrender their parenting rights and sign the necessary paperwork without argument. Such biological parents likely believe that the adoption would overall be best for the child; or the parent might simply acquiesce to be relieved of their current parental financial obligations.

Obtaining consents isn’t always easy. The biological parent might not want to terminate his or her parental rights and could simply refuse to consent. Occasionally, the other parent may be completely “out of the picture” and be unable to locate.
