Adult Adoption California FAQs
Many people wait until they reach the age of 18 to be adopted by their step-parents or other adult(s). The process of adopting an adult is much simpler than the process of adopting a minor child. The only consent that is necessary in an adult adoption is the consent of the adult child, the consent of the adopting parent, and the consent of the adopting parent’s spouse. Adults want to be adopted so they can have a legal right to inherit from their adoptive parents or for a change in immigration status.
At Laguna Legal, the cost for our Adult Adoption service is $1,500 plus $500 for court filings.
Once the petition is filed with the court, all parties will be required to attend a hearing before a judge. The process takes approximately 4-6 months to complete. After the adult adoption is completed, the final step is the issuance of an updated birth certificate.
