A person who has reached the age of eighteen in most states is considered an adult, however in Alabama and Nebraska the age would be 19 and in Mississippi and Pennsylvania the age would be 21, so in theory it is possible but not practical. The court would more than likely amend an adoption petition to one of legal guardianship unless there were mitigating circumstances. One such factor would be if the person were in some way disabled as defined by the state laws and/or SSA guidelines.


In some states it's possible to do an adult adoption long after they turn 18.

Possibly - it depends on the terms of your student loans. If you took out a private student loan through a bank, you will probably need to pay back the loan. If you took federal student loans, depending on when and why the school closed, you may not need to pay the loans back. You should check with the institution that you have been sending your student loan payments to.
