Los Angeles County Adult Adoption Court - Grandmother adopts Grandchild via Adult Adoption

November 2020

Los Angeles County Adult Adoption Court - Grandmother  age 73 adopts Grandchild age 20 via Adult Adoption.  In this case, Adoptee/Grandchild was effectively abandoned by her birth parents who are caught-up in a destructive lifestyle of addiction.  Grandmother raised her Grandchild into responsible adulthood.  Both Grandmother and Grandchild wanted to prioritize their relationship as parent-child over that of the estranged birth parents.  An adult adoption accomplished their purpose.  Time from case filing to approved and final order of adoption was under 2 weeks (11 days exactly).
