Rights and Consequences of Stepparent Adoptions

Stepparent adoptions are not always difficult. In Illinois, the process can be relatively easy, so long as consent is received by the non-custodial biological parent, or if the biological parent is deemed to be unfit. If the biological parent cannot be found, a notice of adoption would need to be published and circulated for at least 30 days. 

Once the child is adopted, the stepparent will have the legal rights and responsibilities of taking care of the child, just like any natural parent would. This means that the biological parent who signed off on giving consent for the adoption will lose all rights and privileges to their child.
