If i was allowed to be adopted by my step mother and my dad is not allowed to have contact with me due to abuse can i move to Arkansas with my birthmother if allowed by my adopted mom at 17 years old?
Yes you can move to Arkansas with her consent. Since you are a minor and moves to another state your birth mom should have temporary custody so she can make medical decisions …etc for you just in case something happens,
Answer This depends on the legalities of the area you live in as well as the wishes of the mother/family.
You're going to need to do a few things, and most likely a LOT more than what I'm about to tell you but this will get you started. * Get your own lawyer NOW. Make… sure he/she is not affiliated with any adoption agency and is REALLY on your side. * If you haven't signed any relinquishment papers yet DO NOT SIGN THEM. EVER. * Tell your new lawyer you want to immediately revoke your consent to the adoption. Some states ( laws vary from state to state to country to country ) have 30 day revoke periods others 24 hours. find out what the laws are in your state IMMEDIATELY. * Document EVERYTHING. * Get involved with a mothers advocacy group like Origins USA or Baby Scoop Era * Its debatable on if you should tell the adoptive parents or not. What is your relationship with them like? do you know them well? will they fight you for your child or will they return him/her upon request? This is something you should talk with others more experienced than myself about. Good luck!
It is not illegal in certain cases to adopt a child without parent's consent. Being adopted at an older age, my parents had no consent who my adoptive parents were. My b…iological parents rights were terminated from the state because they were not deemed fit to be parents and I was in the foster care system. Being an unfit parent means neglecting and or abusing their child(ren). Social Services comes to take the child away and places them in foster care. If a child ends up in the foster care system and become eligible to be adopted, it is ultimately up the the foster parents if they want to adopt the foster child. In my case being an older foster kid, I was also able to have a say in my adoption. Biological parents have no say if the child is in the foster care system.
You are 17 adopted and living with your adoptive father in Michigan and your boilogical mother recently asked you to live with her are you legally able to move in with her without fathers consent?
No, honey, and it doesn't matter which state you are in. Your biological mother has no jurisdiction in the matter and, in fact, has no more legal control over you than d…oes any other adult. The father who chose you and adopted you is your parent. Your biological mother, sadly, relinquished that a while back. It is fine that she wants you in her life, and fine that you also would like to be there. But she cannot override the person who is your legal parent. If you are seventeen, all you have is one more year--or less--and you can decide to live anywhere you want. Since I cannot know the nature of all of these relationships roiling around you, otherwise I have no idea what you should do. I cannot tell you in whose house you might more enjoy living. I don't know. I can tell you, you do not have much longer until you can find out on your own. Good Luck.
absolutely not, no one can adopt any one without the proper court orders
That makes things much more difficult. All adoptions, whether through an agency or done privately, must be approved by a court. The adoptive parents must petition for approval… from the court as well as participate in an adoption hearing. Additionally, prior to any hearings, anyone who is required to consent to the adoption must receive notice. This includes any biological parents, adoption agencies, the child's legal representative (if a court has appointed one), and the child if he or she is old enough. If the court determines that the adoption is in the child's best interest, the judge will issue an order approving and finalizing the adoption. This order, usually called a Final Decree of Adoption, legalizes the new parent-child relationship, and changes the child's name to the name the adoptive parents have chosen.Unless your parents have been charged with parental abuse or an unfavorable environment that you are being brought up in then you cannot be adopted. If your parents are unsuitable to raise you then Legal Aid and the courts will decide whether you will be in Foster Care or live with a suitable relative.
call adoption support for your state.
D I am twelve and I don't want to live with my parents anymore My friend's mom said that she would adopt me Can I get adopted without my mother's consent?
no you couldn't. I'm sorry that you feel the way you do about your family. Believe me when I say that moving out of your home won't solve anything. I'm 15 and I had the same f…eelings and I lost a lot before I realized that my family loves me so much and moving out just made everything worse.
Yes, if a court terminates the biological father's parental rights on the grounds that he is an unfit parent, or the biological father fails to appear for hearings on the matt…er.
Can you contact your biological parents legally when you are 17 without your adoptive parents permission?
Unless there is a court order specifically stating otherwise, there isn't any thing illegal about contacting them; you don't have any legal right to do so though, so your pare…nts are free to forbid you from doing so.
No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.
In the US, no and yes. I believe Utah is the only state where the mother only have the obligation to notify the father of her decision but he can then seek custody and stop th…e adoption. So getting his consent or give him the custody if she does not wish to parent the child, would be the better choice and prevent suffering for hopeful adoptive parents and waste of money and time in court. If the father's paternity has been established legally, no. The court will require his consent to the termination of his parental rights so that the child can be adopted legally. This is one of the most complicated areas of law. Each state has its own laws regarding unmarried birth father rights concerning an adoption. Reputable adoption agencies take precautions to notify the birth father of an adoption and obtain his consent. Any adoption that takes place without the father's consent is risky. There is always the chance the father will hear about the adoption and he can challenge it if he didn't consent. Birth parents parental rights must be terminated in court before an adoption can be approved. Courts will ask for the identity of the father so that he can be given notice of the proceeding. The mother will be required to attest to her answers in the petition. A mother who is not truthful in answering that question may cause problems later if the father shows up after somehow hearing of the adoption. The courts generally require a diligent search for the father if the mother reports that his whereabouts are unknown. In that case a notice is published in the local newspaper. Notice by publication could leave the proceeding vulnerable to challenge. You must seek expert advice in your particular jurisdiction.
No, only with parental consent or when you are 18.
Only if you live in Utah, there notification is enough. You can go to court and see if you can get his parental rights terminated.
No. Only in Utah is his consent not needed, just a notification.
