There are several types of adoptions, like adult adoption, step-parent adoption, adoption of a minor child born in the United States of America, or adoption of a minor child born in a foreign country (re-adoption).
A home study must be completed prior to obtaining a court date for the adoption.
You may or may not choose to use the services of an adoption agency or attorney. Adoption forms can be accessed through Wisconsin Courts
. There is no filing fee for adoptions.
