Pennsylvania Adoption Facts
The parent-child relationship is as much a legal relationship as it is an emotional or biological one. Through the process of adoption, an adoptive parent gains all the rights and responsibilities afforded to natural parents, like the right to raise a child and make decisions about the child's education, religion, medical treatments and upbringing.
In the same way, adopted children gain the rights and responsibilities of a natural child of the adoptive parents, including right to inheritance, the right to receive child support and a potential obligation to pay an aging or deceased parent's debts. Although child adoption is the most common, age is not a factor in adoption so even an adult can be adopted.
