South Dakota Adoptions

Many types of adoption exist which bring parents and children together. An adult may adopt any child who is at least 10 years younger. Adults may also adopt other adults who wish to be adopted.

Adoptions can include the following:

  • Domestic adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Private adoptions
  • Adoptions by family relatives
  • Adoptions by foster parents

As a prospective adoptive parent, you must have the consent of your spouse. If you wish to adopt a child who is 13 years old or older, the child also must consent to the adoption. The child must live in your home for six months before the adoption can be finalized.

Prior to this, other steps will be taken such as the submission of the adoption petition, a home study, and court hearings concerning your fitness as a parent and what the court deems to be in the best interests of the child. The proceedings can take time and require detailed preparation. Thus, it is highly recommended that you have strong legal representation during the adoption process.

For help with any type of adoption, contact an adoption attorney atVer Beek Law, Prof. L.L.C. at (605) 250-2227.
