Adoption creates a legal relationship whereby the child is deemed to be the child of the adoptive parent or parents for any and all purposes, including inheritance purposes. Adoptive parents and children are entitled to all of the legal rights and privileges, and are subject to the same legal obligations, as if the children were biologically born to the adoptive parents.

Adoptions can be contested or uncontested. Adoptions frequently involve the Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) of one natural parent who has not acted as a natural parent should have acted in regards to the child. In some situations, the unwed father of the child to be adopted must consent to the adoption, but this varies depending on the particular circumstances.
