It won't be nearly a expensive as adopting a child from an agency or a foreign country. But you should find a lawyer who deals with this and have the appropriate paperwork drawn up to make it legal. The best way to find a good, reasonably priced lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask around to people who h…ave done this. OR try the yellow pages for lawyers who make adoptions legal and permenent. Call a few different ones, give them the bare-bones facts and choose one that you feel comfortable with and fits your budget. ! (MORE)

Can you adopt your wife's child if the biological father cannot be found and has not been in the child's life since he was 9 months old?
\n. \n Of course \n. \nUnless the kid is, like, 10 months old, the biodad has abandoned the child. If his parental rights haven't already been severed, they should be, and that should open the door to your adopting the kid. Good luck.\n. \n . \n The biological mother will have to file a p…etition in the state court in the city or county where she resides to have the father's parental rights terminated before the child is eligible for adoption.\n. \nIn such cases the court is generally agreeable, but such cases are judged on their individual merit.\n. \nIn most situations the petitioner will need to show the court that\nreasonable attempts to locate the biological parent have been made to obtain his or her consent for the adoption.\n. \nAbandonment laws in most states do not address the issue of the adoption of a child based only on the issue of one or both parents not being present.

It's quite simple really. First, start small. Go out, buy some jeans (a 4 regular is the same as a guy's 28x29 at American eagle.) , maybe an A line skirt or two. No minis. Shave the legs. If you don't know much in the way of makeup, don't worry about it (have some gal friends help you out.). Really…, all most of us go with is lipgloss, mascara, and some eyeliner. If your hair isn't long, let it grow out, and get it cut in a feminine style. Let your nails grow SLIGHTLY. Just barely past the edge of your finger will do. Cut them straight, and use a transparent polish if any. Go out, get some undergarments (when choosing a bra, light ones with light clothes, dark for dark, only get an A or B. that way it looks somewhat natural on you.), especially a Corsette. to maintain the feminine torso look, you must wear these at all times. Get some dresses, at least one of each of the following: a cocktail dress, a 'church' dress, and a sun dress. Make sure to have matching purses or clutches, shoes and earrings. Oh, yeah, you should get your ears pierced as well. Work on your posture (lower the shoulders and arc the back), the way you walk (swing your hips, but only slightly.), the way you talk (talk with your hands a little, get your voice pretty soft and higher pitched, but don't make it evident that you are trying.) Work out more with cardio related activities rather than weights. Cut the junk food. Only snack on veggies or fruit. You may also find it useful to consult a stylist. (MORE)
Answer . \nNo, the father, can take custody of the child but this does NOT take custody away from you just because you wanted to give your child up for adoption.
Answer . Yes, he has rights and if you want to adopt this child he would have to relinquish his rights to you. Go see an adoption attorney and he will best guide you.
Well, if you see that she is struggling with bills, food, etc. Sure why not. IF you live in the house with her and have a job, definitely, pay your fair share. If you know that she needs something and cant afford it or all of it on her own, help her out with that. Dont take the load all by yourself,… either, if you have siblings then ask them to pitch in what they can too. You only have one mother and father and they helped raise you so you can help sustain them now. (MORE)

My father recently passed away and did not have a will according to his current wife of 14 years. I am his first born. Do I have any rights to his assets?
Either the biological father has to sign away his rights as a parent, or you can go to an adoption attorney and take that route. If the biological is not active in the child's life, it may be fairly simple. If he is active, the biological can fight for his rights and you will probably end up in cour…t. My husband and I went through this and are going through the phase that I hear most people go through who do legal adoptions. Our children have sought out the biological and he(the biological) is reaking havok on our household-its terrible, so just understand the process and the consequence of your loving action. It can come back to bite you later-possibly, not always. Remember kids always think the grass is greener on the other side. Best of luck though. (MORE)

Both of my parents are deceased my father passed away in 99 and mother passed away in 05 and I am the only surviving child how do I transfer my name on the two Michigan properties that my parents left?
Answer . If the estates were properly probated and the title to the real estate is now in your name you could arrange to convey the properties to a straw who will immediately convey the property back to you. When you convey to the straw your source of title will be recited on the deeds or deed. Th…e deeds or deed back to you from the straw will place the record title in your name. You should seek the advice of an attorney to make the transfer properly. \n. \nEven if you do not complete the procedure using the straw the property is already in your name by virtue of the probate records which are a part of the public records affecting real estate. Some lenders require that the property be transferred to the heir by a new deed. (MORE)

No, her biological father is your father-in-law, and her stepfather is your stepfather-in-law. If you have kids, he will be their step-grandfather.
There are several stages when it comes to adoption. The first would be to find the child you are interested in adopting. If it is someone you know, it makes the process a bit easier. The biological parents will be involved in the process.

You will need to see an attorney to determine the answer to this question. It will be entirely dependent on the state law in the state where your father resided before his death.. When you visit with the attorney, you should take a list of your father's living and dead relatives including spouse, c…hildren, and parents. It is helpful if you mark the ones who are deceased in some way. In addition, if you know what assetts he owned and where they are held (bank, insurance, stock broker etc.) make a list of that also. Since his debts must be cleared, you should make a list of the debts of which you are aware. Finally, if you father died by any means other than old age, you should be prepared to relate the circumstances to the attorney. (MORE)
If he has legally left a will that says that as the son you inherit all his wealth then it is not. Even if he hasn't left a will, you must file a legal request asking of transfer of property as the legal heir. If either of the above two is done then it is Legal. If not then it is Illegal.
This is a very sad and sensitive moment. Sometimes it is best to say nothing at all. It is easy to say the wrong thing. However, a neutral "I'm very sorry to hear that.... " might be a good way to start, and then take it from there. Maybe just you being near will be comfort enough. Try to avoi…d opening remarks such as 'It was for the best'. Or anything that may clash with the person's own feelings and thoughts at this tragic time. The bereaved need sincere, sensitive and personal support, not automatically trotted out 'standard words' of comfort. There is no doubt that such an event is a sad time for all, so quiet reflection may be far better than trite and badly chosen remarks, even though such remarks may have been spoken with the best of intentions.

Adoption by step-parents is the most common type of adoption in the United States and the procedure is virtually the same as it would be for other types of adoption. The process is relatively easy in those cases in which the biological parent consents or has abandoned his parental duties. If the bio…logical parent refuses to consent to the step-parent adoption it is still possible for the step-parent to successfully adopt the step-child. However, a lawsuit will have to be brought against the biological parent. This lawsuit will aim to terminate his or her biological rights. Below is a general outline of the steps in the adoption process . Filing of a petition : The parties wishing to adopt must file a petition with the court asking the court to approve their desire to adopt a particular child. . Notice period: After the petition is filed, anyone with a vested interest in the child well being (e.g., a parent, guardian, legal representative, adoption agency, or in most states the child herself if over 12 years old) must receive notice of the petition. Exact notice requirements vary by state. . Adoption hearing: During the hearing, the judge determines if the adoption is in the child:s best interest. If satisfied, the judge will then issue an final decree of adoption. (MORE)

WikiAnswers condolences to you and your family. As you know if the father has passed away an uncle; a good elderly friend or even a brother can walk down the aisle with the bride and he can give away the bride to the groom. Some brides who have recently lost their father will ask the photography (…or a friend with camera) to go to the grave site of their father (before going to the reception hall) and the bride will pick out one flower from her bouquet and place it on the grave site; the person taking the pictures of the bride doing so are personal memories to her. It would be at the wedding reception that it is acceptable for the bride to rise as the first toast and make a 'short' speech about her father not being at her wedding and then say 'please rise and raise your glasses for a toast to (put your father's name here.' The reason the speech should be short is the wedding is suppose to be joyous event (which the father would want to see) and not a sad event; yet honoring the father and including him in the wedding. Instead of throwing the bouquet (have the florist make up an array of flowers in cellophane with a ribbon on it, the bride can leave her wedding bouquet (after all pictures have been taken) at the grave site of her father and the other array of flowers in cellophane can be thrown to the single women at the reception.

Yes, adults can be adopted. You will need to consult a lawyer but it is fairly common. HOWEVER, the 19-year-old is an adult so they cannot be adopted "single sided," that is, without their consent. (Note that a non-US-citizen 19-year-old cannot come into the US and become a citizen through adoption …the way a younger child could.) (MORE)
