Benefits of a Grandparent Adoption
Grandparent adoptions are considered a kinship adoption, which is adoption by a family member or relative. There are a number of benefits that are unique to these types of adoptions -- as a grandparent, you have preference over other adopting parties because of the existing emotional bond you have with your grandchild. It's also likely you won't have to go through an adoption agency, which can help reduce costs.
Common reasons for grandparent adoption can include:
- The child’s parents divorce
- Child abuse, neglect, or parental abandonment
- Supporting parent is incarcerated
- Parents do not have the financial capacity to support the child
