While adoption laws are similar in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey – we suggest contacting us to discuss your exact situation.

Generally – Any person aged 18 and 10+ years older than the child, may be eligible to adopt that child. If you’re married, you’ll need written consent from your spouse, unless you are filing jointly. The only exception for married people is if they are living separately. You may adopt in the state if the child is born there or the adoption agency has a location there. You’ll need to meet requirements which include a home study that is used to assess the safety and efficacy of the adoption being a good situation for the child.
