Do You Wish To Adopt A Child Who Is Your Relative?
Adoptions in Georgia by a relative include grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts, great uncles, or siblings. While many different types of people are allowed to adopt children in Georgia, being related to the child in some instances may make the process go through a little easier.
If you currently taking care of a child and you’re a relative, you may want to inquire as to whether you should or wish to adopt the child that you were taking care of. Adopting the child will afford you greater rights and responsibilities regarding the minor child such as an ability to make medical and educational decisions for the child without a risk of having the child taken by one of the parents on whim.
Under Georgia law, relatives are allowed to adopt the children that they are taking care of so long as they are able to morally and financially take care of the child. A lawyer can help you understand the different scenarios and advocate for your rights.
