In this article, our Illinois adoption attorneys explain adoptions in Illinois under the Illinois Adoption Act. We discuss in detail different types of adoption, including:
In order to be eligible to adopt in Illinois you must not have a legal disability, have lived in Illinois for at least 6 months, and have a good reputation.
People who can be adopted included children who have been surrendered to an adoption agency, children who have been placed in the custody of the prospective adoptive parents by the biological parents, children whose adoption has been consented to by a court-appointed authority, and adults who have resided with the prospective adoptive parents for more than 2 years.
In this article, our Illinois adoption lawyers explain the termination of the biological parents’ parental rights as a prerequisite to adoption. We discuss any exceptions to this requirement, such as deceased biological parents. We also explain the different processes for voluntary termination of parental rights and involuntary termination of parental rights.
