In this article, our Will County adoption attorneys explain everything you need to know about Illinois adoption law. We discuss the different types of adoption cases in Illinois, including related adoption, agency adoption, private adoption, standby adoption, and adult adoption. We explain the Illinois eligibility requirements for both adoptive parents and adoptees.
In the absence of certain exceptions, the parental rights of the biological parents must be terminated prior to the entry of an adoption order. We discuss the exceptions to the necessity of terminating parental rights in an adoption case, as well as the process for terminating parental rights both with the consent of the biological parents and through involuntary termination.
We lay out the stages of the adoption process beginning with the filing of the adoption petition, followed by an interim hearing, an investigation, and a final hearing. Finally, we discuss how to amend the birth certificate once the adoption has been finalized.
