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
