Chandler Adoption AttorneysSchedule a Consultation
Generally, in order for a non-parent to adopt a child in Chandler, one of the biological parents must be deceased or willing to sign a consent to sever or terminate their parental rights. If a child’s biological parents have abandoned the child, or have serious substance abuse or mental health issues, it may be possible to terminate their parental rights through the court. If contested, the case will be litigated and the court may or may not allow the termination depending upon case-specific facts.

Depending on your relationship to the child, it may be necessary to become certified to adopt before the case can proceed. This Chandler adoption process requires fingerprinting, a home study, and a criminal background check.
