Is it really necessary for adopted parents to change their adopted children's last names?
When you get adopted you become one of their family and cut the ties with your former family. Most adoptive children never sees their biological parents again so having a strangers last name would make them feel not a part of the family.

Answer . \nIn many cases when adoption papers haven't been signed this is a good indication that either someone in the family was pregnant with you and for reasons of their own could't look after you, so your adoptive parents took over. Even a friend of one of your adoptive parents. Most adopti…ons that are legal are in the records of that adoption agency and the papers are for protection purposes so that child can never be taken away from the adoptive parents.\n. \nPlease sit down with your parents and tell them you are old enough for the truth. Assure them you still love them, but you feel a large void in your life and you need to know who your real parents are so you can get on with your life. I doubt they will refuse, but if they do, you can either try to find out the adoption agency, or if this is too hard hire a detective to find out who your parents were.\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)

An adoption of a child is when two parents who cannot have children on their own or have some other reason not to have biological children contact either and adoption agency or an orphanage to bring into their home a child whose parents could not take care of him/her. This is the simple answer.

Answer . My Son is now 18 and I still worry and love him as much as the day he was born. And I will always consider him my son.
If you are mistreated or abandoned you have to report to the police or social worker. To get adopted as a teen is very difficult unless you know someone, a relative or someone else and then foster home is usually the start. Foster homes are more common. If it works the discussion about adoption can …come up. The social worker has as a job to sort out the living situations and remove you from biological family if necessary. They can help with a adoption agency etc. Adoption is final and you don't have contact with the biological family again unless the adoptive parents allow you to. Finally a judge decides if they can adopt you or not after listening to the social worker. (MORE)
Edgar Allan did not have adopted parents. Poe had foster parents. He was taken in by Mr. and Mrs. John Allan; however they never adopted him. The Allans had Poe baptized "Edgar Allan Poe." The relationship between John Allan and Edgar Allan Poe was eventually very strained, but in honor of his foste…r parents, Poe used the Allan name prominently even though he could have simply used the initial. Often, the name is misspelled as "Allen." (MORE)

I know for a fact that in Florida you can not undo the adoption or terminate your parental rights, unless someone else is willing to adopt the child. I told an attorney what my wife had told me, prior to adopting her daughter, that if I adopted her and we divorced I could terminate my parental right…s since I was not the biological father. The attorney said "she told you what, sorry". I am now going through a divorce with this woman and have been stuck with paying her child support for a child who does not want to see me nor do I wish to see. So anybody reading this before you adopt please seek the advice of an attorney it could save you thousands!!!! of dollars. Apparently your wife is allowed to tell you anything she wants to in order to get you to adopt her kid and a court does not care apparently what she told you or promised. (MORE)

This question does not contain enough information to be answered. Who are you wanting to adopt? and WHY did you put this question in Bible Statistics and History, and Comparitive Denominations?

Many people can adopt but you would need to fill out some forms. Also it would be a good idea to do some research before you do.
i don,t know if state laws are different, but in my state if the father is alive he has to waive his parental rights if he has any. or if you can't get him to do that and you atleast want her lastname changed you have to go through the courts for a name change, if your child is over 14yrs they can r…equest it, if not the father is supposed to agree, but there ways around that, if you prove that you cant find him or that he hasn't been around in years, you can ask for a judgment. you should be able to get the paperwork @ the courthouse and they will explain it (MORE)

Adoption is when you take in a child/baby that you did not birth. There are many steps in adopting a child and can be very emotional and may bring alot of down falls. But never the less adopting a child that needs a family and love is the right thing to do!!!
adopt parents are parents (mom, dad) that adopt a child/children... the child/children are NOT the parent's biologal child/chidlren, they had their REAL parents before but hey might have passed away or whatever... soemtimes a couple might adopt domeone in their family, a niece, nephew, cousin, etc.
Answer: An adoption is not allowed until rights of the child have been signed away and then there is usually a 10 to 30 day period the natural parents can change their minds no because that would be bad parenting and that would be cruel newtest3
Due to discovering your last name is an adopted last name and want to change last name your boy is four years old will he have any type of mental difficulty if you change his last name only?
If the boy is four years old he is probably used to using just his forename, not his last name. Nursery school workers etc do not usually use children's last names (ie surnames) when they are talking to children. If you and your boy have different last names, that would probably cause more difficult…ies later in life. People would want to know why you and he have different last names and that could be an invasion of your and his privacy. (MORE)

My cousin was adopted and was shy. Now she is a crazy freak! If you want to keep the name, you can. Just get your adoptive …parents to talk to an agent about it. (MORE)
Well it depends. Some of the time (or most) someone from the adoption agency (the person setting up the adoption) will go and get the child then bring them home. Sometimes one or both people who are adopting the child may go with that person to get the child and meet the parent.
Harry Potter was never adopted, he was placed in the care of his aunt and uncle: Petunia and Vernon Dursley.

If mother remarries and stepfather adopts the child and changes the last name on the birth certificate does the child become a blood relative?
The only way you are a BLOOD relative is if you have the same blood line. You can't change a persons biological parents. If the step father adopts the child, then the child is by law their child and a family member, but not a literal blood relative.
Children are adopted for a variety of reasons. Here are a few: . The parents could not conceive a child on their own,. . The parents were unable to conceive to a healthy child. . The parents are homosexual, and therefore cannot conceive a child of their own. Whatever the reason, your …parents love you, even if they didn't conceive you. :) (MORE)
Adoption is a process in which someone assumes the legalresponsibility of parenting a child who was born to someone else.
It is not legally required to change your surname once you have been adopted. It is usually up to the adoptee if they want to change their surname. At least, that was the case with me, I was adopted at the age of 7 and my adoptive parents asked me if I wanted to keep my name or change it. I, of c…ourse, changed it. (MORE)
yea i think that u can change a adopted child's name but that sonly if you would like to change his or her name your self not if they want to . Another Answer: Once a child grows up enough to understand the gift of adoption, it will be important to that child to know fully his or her given na…me. One reason to change an adopted child's name would be to hide the fact that the child was adopted. Over time, most every adopted child discovers the truth, in which case, the people who changed the name could be faced with questions they are not comfortable answering. Another option would be to give the child a nickname and leave the original name intact. This way, the people who want to change the child's name can use a name they like, while leaving the adopted child's identity intact. (MORE)
Yes, but best to get a court order confirming the change, even if the child is not adopted.
Can you change your last name with out your parents approval if your 18 and your step dad adopted you?
As an adult, there is nothing preventing you from petitioning the court to have your name legally changed.
You get adopted because your real parents couldn't look after you so they put you in a care home until someone comes along and becomes your foster parents an adopts you
I know it's hard but it is their house and a cat can live for 17 years. When you move out or go to school you might not be allowed to take it with you to the new place so your parents will be stuck with it. Try to find another family or give it to a shelter.
Because either your parents thought you needed someone else to take care of you or social services took you off them cause they couldent look after you proper ley like me xox but they still love you no matter what xox and dont want you to go but sometimes it has to be that way xox dont worry if you …wanted you can always go find them later xox they no like you no more (MORE)
Depends. Some children who have contact with both they're biological and adoptive parents refer to both sets as "mom & dad". So I would talk to both sets and ask what they feel comfortable as to what you should call you're biological parents.
In their head they can.... many adopted children do. But in real life I don't think any child can/would disown their parents
Part of the adoption process involves the termination of rights of the biological parents. When the adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents assume the rights and responsibilities of the biological parents.
Yes. When you adopt, a new birth certificate is issued, and that is the easiest time to change the child's name. (It can be done later, of course, but that involves another set of fees and a trip to the courthouse.)
This depends on the state, and is no different than any other child (unless there is specifically a court order in your case that says otherwise)
This is a rarity; not common. Lately, in the news, there was a study that found that families have behaviors in common--not just limited to gestures, phrases or rates of learning. An adopted child comes from another family type and may have issues related to that biological behavior from the two fam…ilies. Certainly, integrating the child at whatever age, does take patience and mentoring. (MORE)
Nature vs Nurture Physically quite difficult.. but by nurturing the child, the latter will show some common pattern as far as attitude is concerned..
Once adopted the child becomes a part of that family just as if they were born into it. If the adoptive parents die the socialworkers will ask the relatives and if they can not the child will go to foster care and up fpor adoption again. But the birth parents can never adopt the child back.
You will probably have to go to court and have it done there. Local laws may vary. You will probably have to go to court and have it done there. Local laws may vary.
