3 things to know about adopting your stepchild

Now that you are happily married, you want to take the next step to connect your new family. You want to adopt your new wife's son. While adoptions can often be very complicated procedures, sometimes taking months or even years, adopting a stepchild is typically a much easier process. However, this does not mean it comes totally challenge-free. The main roadblock you might experience is a lack of consent from the boy's biological father.

Your prenup might be invalid

When you and your husband first met, you already had a successful medical practice. That is why, before the two of you married, you each signed a prenuptial agreement.

You will also have to make decisions about how you will earn an income to support yourself and your children. Child support will help, but it may not be enough to fully maintain your accustomed stand of living. You have not had a job since your first child was born, so it may take some time before you are able to find employment. What will you do until you have an acceptable level of income?

Starting over after a 30-year marriage
