Wisconsin Adoption Forms

When it comes to step parent adoption in Wisconsin, or for any other type of adoption petition and in any other state of the country, for that matter, you should get professional help for your petitions. That is because, while the legal process behind an adoption petition may be convenient and even encouraging for obvious reasons, the application forms are not so friendly. In fact, erroneous forms are the biggest reason why applicants get their petitions are refused submission in courts.


Coming back to the matter of getting professional help for your adoption applications in Wisconsin courts, there are two major options that you can pursue for the preparation of your petition.

The first option is going to a family law firm and purchasing their services with the hopes of getting strong legal wisdom to go in the application forms. An adoption attorney would certainly be qualified to prepare your application, but they will charge you a fat check as service fee and take well over a week to do the job so they can justify the money.

Your other option is Rapid Adoption, where we are waiting to assist you for a fraction of the fee an attorney would charge and get your papers ready for the courts in three days, if not sooner. \

We offer this kind of value because we have a specialized service where all our focus is on getting adoption applications ready for courts all across the US. We have established our expertise doing this over the last 15 years without ever getting a petition of ours refused submission in any court.

Before we talk about the importance of what kind of expert help you should get, let us share a tip we give to every one of our customers. The suggestion is you become acquainted with the law of the land. In other words, you should get to know the adoption laws in Wisconsin before you start working on your petition forms for the courts. This knowledge will not only help you see what is expected of you as the applicant but also make you realize what to expect from the legal process involved.


Among all the types of adoption, step parent adoption in Wisconsin involves the least complications, for obvious reasons. One of the adopting parents happens to be the birth parent of the adoptee and, so, the matter of consents is easily resolved. You will need their consent but not your stepchild’s regardless of their age. However, if the minor is 12 or older, they are expected to be at the court hearings for the petition.

Another important condition you need to satisfy for step parent adoption in Wisconsin is related to your stay in the state. You must be a legal resident to apply for any type of child adoption in Wisconsin. You are also expected to have the adoptee child live under your roof for at least six months before the final hearing on the petition.

These conditions stand even when you pursue child adoption in Wisconsin through a placement agency. However, apart from getting written consent from the natural parents of the foster child and getting your spouse to sign up as your co-petitioner, you must not object if the birth parents of the child refuse to give you their child because of a difference in your faiths.


Adult adoption in Wisconsin is pursued in many ways similar to the other types of adoption petitions. The legal requirements are quite the same, including the residence status of the petitioners and the home residency requirement for the adoptee. For adult adoption in Wisconsin, you should get your spouse to sign up as your co-applicant and get written consent from the adoptee adult.

Relative adoption in Wisconsin is not discouraged and you can adopt any adult relative of yours. Of course, this is fortunate for so many people who get to receive legal guardianship of an adult relation who can look after their needs in case they cannot themselves.
