At Sweeney Law Offices, we understand the emotional, financial and psychological burdens you may be facing already — which is why we want to take care of all the legal challenges ahead of you.

Can You Adopt Someone Over 18?

While most times adoption is carried out by parents seeking to bring a child into their home, there are a number of situations where adult adoption may be worth pursuing. They can range from financial reasons to fulfilling more emotional purposes.

  • To establish inheritance, making it easier to leave property or assets to someone over 18
  • To allow a stepparent to adopt their stepchild while they are older than 18
  • To reconnect a child over the age of 18 who has found their birth parent(s) and allow them to legally become part of the family
  • To make it easier for one to care for an adult over the age of 18 who may be disabled or otherwise needs assistance
