Adoption in Nebraska

When an adoption of a child occurs in Nebraska, the adopting parent becomes that child’s parent for all legal purposes and the parent and child have the same rights and responsibilities to each other as they would have if the child were biologically born to that parent.  Generally, adoption cases fall into three categories: 1) adoption by a stepparent; 2) a private adoption arrangement; 3) adoption from foster care. For all types of adoptions, the child or children to be adopted must have resided with the proposed adoptive parent or parents for at least six months before the petition can be filed.
