The Legal Effect of Adopting

Once the adoption is consummated, i.e., the court signs an order granting the adoption, the parent-child relationship between the adoptive parent and the child is created for all purposes.  An adopted child is entitled to inherit from and through the child's adoptive parents as though the child were the biological child of the parents.
