Types of Adoptions in New Jersey

  • Private agency adoptions
  • Direct or independent adoptions
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • International or foreign adoptions

The Basics of the New Jersey Adoption Process

Adoptions are very fact sensitive, and the process will vary depending on which type of adoption you are pursuing and the specific circumstances of your case. In most situations, legally adopting a child will involve at least three steps:

  • Gaining approval from the appropriate court in New Jersey
  • Gaining the consent of all parties concerned
  • Completing a court adoption hearing
