Adoption is the legal process that grants an adult, that is not the biological parent of the child, legal responsibility for that minor child. There are two primary types of adoption: step-parent adoption and third-party adoption. An adoption can be considered contested or uncontested. A contested adoption occurs when a biological parent or other legal caregiver objects to the court granting the adoption. An uncontested adoption means that no parent or legal caregiver opposes the adoption taking place.
