Frequently Asked Questions
about Stepparent Adoption

It can take anywhere from a couple of months to over a year for a stepparent adoption to be finalized depending on the circumstances of your specific situation.

To start your stepparent adoption in Nebraska, you will need:

  • Marriage: The stepparent must be married to his/her stepchild’s biological parent.
  • Residence: The stepchild must have been living with the stepparent for at least 6 months before the stepparent adoption can start.
  • Consents: If you want to adopt your stepchild, both your spouse and the other biological parent have to agree to it. The law does grants some exceptions to getting the consent of the absent biological parent.

On average, a stepparent adoption in Nebraska can cost anywhere from $3,000 to over $5,000 depending on the complexity of your specific situation. Schedule a free consultation with our law office to find out how much yours will cost. 

Yes! In Nebraska, the law allows for the adoption of your adult stepchild. So if you never got around to adopting your stepchild for one reason or another, it is not too late to start the process. Call us to get started today.

There are a lot of situations in which the non-custodial biological parent may not agree to a stepparent adoption. The law provides a mechanism to proceed with stepparent adoptions without the non-custodial absent biological parent but they are very complex.  Schedule a free consult with our law office to find out what to expect for your specific situation.
