What would you like to do?
A claim against the deceased's estate may be made in probate court when the will is probated. The court will take it under advisement to ascertain if the claimant has a valid, legal claim. But it would be unusual to overturn a will that seems to be written so specifically.

Because they realize they are not capable of caring for an infant at that particular time of their life. Perhaps they are not financially able, or not in good health, or… any number of legitimate reasons. A mother who allows her child to be adopted gives the child the opportunity to grow up in a secure and loving family environment. She is not doing it to make her life easier but to make the child's life better, it is an unselfish, courageous and loving act.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nIt is harder than when a "married couple" choose to adopt, but not impossible. It can depend on more than your marital status, you have to be …financially stable, emotionally stable, etc., to adopt. It also depends on the state you're in and the adoption agencies' policies.
Answer The biological father would not need to adopt his own child. He would petition the court for full custody of the minor child and assuming the court …deemed him fit for parenting he would become the sole custodian.
Can a man who is married adopt a child without his wife if the child has a mother already in other cwords his god daughter has no father he wants to father her in case of anything but she has a mom?
This varies from state to state. You should call an adoption agency or adoption attorney in the state where the child resides.
That dependent of the age of the child and your state. In Kansas, if the father has not been providing financial support during the pregnancy, he cannot stop an adoption… of the child up to one year old. In Missouri, if you have not had contact with the child for at least six months, even when being denied access, you will not even be notified of the adoption. In most cases, you have to be notified in every state, and given the opportunity to file a challenge.
Only if an improper adption was done, and less than two years has past.
If a father terminates his parental rights does the mother have to give up the child for adoption if the mother is a single parent?
If the father terminates his parental rights the single mother can legally and solely have full custody of that child as long as the courts decide that she is capable of worki…ng and providing a safe environment for the child. There are times that the parents of the young mother, or possibly grandparents will help in looking after the child if the mother is a minor and finishing her education and the courts will often look favorably on this.
You need to see a lawyer. Look for "Legal Aid" in your state as they offer free or low-cost legal advice. If someone is the "biological" father, he doesn't adopt the child, it… is his child. He is legally obligated (in the USA) to provide support (money) for the child's needs. The only exception is if the mother was married to another man at the time of the birth, then legally the husband is considered the baby's father (even if everyone knows and admits that the other man is the baby's biological father). If you're asking whether the biological father can be forced to take care of the child in his own house, the answer is "no" he can give up his parental rights to the child. If you're asking whether the biological father can take the child away from the mother and her boyfriend/husband, the answer is "maybe" if he can PROVE to a court that the baby's mother is unfit and he (the biological father) is a better parent. If the father WANTS to be involved in the baby's life even though the mother has a new boyfriend/husband, the father MUST be allowed to have visitation with his child. Not allowing him to see the child may cause the courts to consider the mother not fit to raise the child. Again, GET LEGAL ADVICE from a lawyer.
Can a biological mother give her child up for adoption to the non bilogical father that has been raising the child since birth?
She can; that would be a private adoption and would still require either an agency or a lawyer, since the father-to-be would have to undergo the same home study process as any… adoptive parent.
Yes, for as long as she is capable of raising a child and without psychological problem as well as cansupport the child basic needs as he/she grows up.
The is dependent of whether there is a father in the picture. In considering this, be sure to determine of she has been denying the father access to the child, and he has fina…lly given up after spend thousands to enforce his rights.
Because maybe she doesn't know her enough. Or maybe she doesn't want to feel like your wife is replacing her mother. You both should try to get to know her by spending quality… time together as a family.
Do a father have to adopt his child after the father n mother of the child gets married n the child has the mothers last name?
You can't adopt a child who's biologically yours. If you have not already done so, I suggest that you ask the court for an order finding that you are the father. You will prob…ably have to sign an acknowledgment of paternity or undergo genetic testing to accomplish this.
No, the child is his too and he might want to take care of it or someone of his family. If the father is unknown it's different.
