Step-parent adoption and termination of parental rights

Adoption can provide a number of benefits. While there is the positive emotional impact it can have on both an adopted child and his or her adoptive parent, there may also be other very real consequences. Once an adoption is completed, an adopted child may be able to inherit property from an adoptive parent and certain legal rights with regard to medical care may come into existence. For these reasons, adoption can take many forms. While many Louisianans may think that most adoptions involve babies or children in the foster care system, the truth of the matter is that other forms, such as step-parent adoption, are quite common.

Struggling to pay to raise your child? Consider LA attorneys

We've devoted a significant amount of our recent posts to issues involving child support, and for good reason. As we discussed previously, raising a child is becoming more expensive. This fact, coupled with the high divorce rate in Louisiana, means that many custodial parents are left struggling to find ways to make ends meet. Perhaps the best way for them to find the financial stability they need and deserve is to pursue child support from a noncustodial parent.

Bill seeks to waive child support payments during incarceration

Depending on which side of a child support dispute you find yourself on, you may either be unable to either pay or recover owed child support. Custodial parents who are unable to recover child support may have a tough time paying for their child's educational expenses, extracurricular activities, and even their everyday expenses and medical costs. Noncustodial parents, on the other hand, may find themselves unable to make child support payments due to a decrease in wages or another change in circumstances.
