Different types of Adoption in Illinois

Naperville Adoption Lawyers

Naperville attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the top 3 qualities to look for in your adoption attorney.

Naperville Adoption Lawyers

Naperville adoption attorneys explain adoption law. Adoption in Illinois is governed by the Illinois Adoption Act. The following are the five different types of adoption:

  • Agency Adoption is when an agency gives the authority to place a child with the adopting parents. This happens when the biological parents voluntarily give their child to an adoption agency or if a court has terminated the biological parents' parental rights.
  • Related Adoption occurs when the person being adopted is related to the adopting parents. This is when a step-parent wishes to adopt their step-child. The biological parent would be listed on the adoption petition as well as the step-parent.
  • Adoption of an adult happens when the child is 18 years or older when being adopted.
  • Standby adoption happens when a legal parent is terminally ill and agrees to a specific person adopting their child if the parent becomes too ill to care for the child.
  • Private adoption occurs outside an agency and neither adopting parents are related to the child being adopted.

To be eligible for adoption in Illinois you must have lived in Illinois for at least six months, not have a legal disability and have a good reputation. In most circumstances, the adopting parents must be over the age of 18.
