Another important step that you should make sure you take is to understand New Mexico’s adoption laws. We are sharing the highlights of these regulations in the following paragraphs so you can gather this knowledge before getting our service. This will ensure you are informed enough of the legal process involved, which will allow you to know what to expect when you finally submit the application we have prepared for you.


The amount of work you will be required to do for your petition for step parent adoption in New Mexico depends on the kind of relationship you have with your spouse. If you are happily living together, you only need their consent as the natural parent of the adoptee, and it is something they will provide happily. In some cases, though, the court might not require their consent. Also, if there is happiness in the family, the other consent, which must come from the adoptee minor if they are 14 or older, will be more forthcoming.

If you are not applying for step parent adoption in New Mexico and still want to adopt a child, you can petition for an agency placed child. For this kind of child adoption in New Mexico, the legal process will depend on the age of the child in question. However, if you are married, your spouse must consent with this petition or, preferably, become a co-applicant.


Adult adoption in New Mexico has its own set of conditions as well. While there seems to be no strict requirement for the adoptee adult to live any specific length of time under your roof before the adoption takes place, there is a need for written consent to be filed with your application. Adult adoption in New Mexico does not make any limitations with regard to the relationship you have with the adoptee adult. So, you can apply for relative adoption in New Mexico as well in case an elderly relative (or younger adult) is in need of family care and love.
