Each state has its own adoption laws. You will need to check with a lawyer concerning your local law. I know of one case where the father did not pay child support. The lawyer had the court declare the child abandoned by the father. Then adoption proceedings began. After the adoption became final, the birth father appeared. He could do nothing.

Can you get your baby back on an open adoption?

Legal and lawful adoption is a process that ends in the final and irrevocable transference of all rights and responsibilities for a child from the biological parents to the adoptive parents. Open adoption is an agreement between adoptive parents and biological parents that addresses continuing contact between biological parents and the adopted child. This can take many forms, from regular letters to frequent visits. Open adoption does not alter the legality of the adoption, the finality and irrevocability, in any way.

Can a father re-adopt his sons if the adopted parents are ok with it?

No. When you leave a child for adoption the papers you sign mean that you are legally prevented from being that child's parent again. The final decision on who will adopt a child is the courts even if the adoptive parents say yes in this case. The adoption can be reverted so the child is up for adoption again if they feel they are not his parents but the biological parents can not adopt him.

If your child is adopted without your knowledge do you have to pay child support arrearages?

That is not possible unless fraud has been committed by the custodial parent. Before a child is eligible for adoption all legal steps must be completed as outlined by the laws of the state in which the child is a resident. A biological parent must voluntarily relinquish his or her rights to the child or have those rights permanently terminated by the court. An adoption cannot proceed until the above litigation is completed and a final TPR decree granted. When a child is legally adopted by a new spouse or by a qualified party, the responsibility of financial support by a biological parent(s) is terminated. The court will address the issue of arrearages and if they are applicable before the adoption becomes final.

How do i adopt my wife's child?

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 biological 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.

Can I add a father to the adopted child's birth certificate after the adoption is final?

The adoptive father? If so, yes it can be done, but the procedure may vary depending on where you live. In general, it may or may not involve a court order (in some states, only the decree of adoption may be required) filling out the necessary paperwork with the bureau of vital statistics where you live, having your signatures notarized and the document returned along with the court order if required, or the adoption decree.

How do you get adopted?

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.

When did Washington revise the law which no longer required step parents to pay child support after they had divorced the biological parent?

There is no such law. The only way a step parent could be obligated for child support in such a situation is if he or she had legally adopted the minor child/children. The Washington State law applies only to a step parent paying support until the final dissolution decree is rendered. Once the divorce is final, the step parent has no further legal financial obligation to non biological children.

Where find a copy of your son adoption papers born in Arkansas?

Your question is confusing. Did you give your son up for adoption or do you need a copy of the court order finalizing the adoption? For the court order finalizing the adoption, you would get a copy from the court that made the adoption final. You would need to contact that court or county to find out what office handles that. You will pay a fee for a copy. If you gave up your son for adoption, you have a more difficult job.

Can a biological parent that allowed the stepparent to adopt her children get the children back due to mental cruelty and abuse even though she gave up her rights and the children are 14 and 16?

No. To get them back would be an uphill battle and cost a lot of money - which may end up wasted if that biological parent loses. Signing over rights and allowing an adoption to be finalized is a very final thing.

Cost of giving your baby up for adoption?

There are no financial costs involved with relinquishing a child for adoption. There may be, however, great emotional costs that should be closely evaluated before such a final and irrevocable step is taken. Answer2: There is no cost to give up a baby, but states will require consent to be in writing and done before a judge or other court-appointed person. This applies equally to biological mothers and biological fathers who have established paternity. Many states have designed programs to help ease the transition for all parties involved. This includes children, birth parents and adoptive parents to prevent anxiety, trauma, coercion or other negative psychological effects that may come during an adoption process.

If temporary divorce orders were drawn up with the father paying court-ordered child support is he obligated to pay child support if he signs over parental rights before final court?

The father cannot relinquish his parental rights until the divorce decree has been finalized. When that is done, he can file a TPR suit it may or may not be granted and he may or may not be relieved of his financial obligation. Relinquishment of parental rights is generally granted to allow the minor child to become eligible for adoption by the new spouse of the custodial parent, not so the non custodial parent can escape his or her financial obligations.

Can an underage child get their baby back after they have given the baby up for adoption?

Adoption is final so no, no matter how old they are. The only time you can ever get your child back is if you change your mind within 30 days of the closure of the adoption date. If you changed your mind and have a hard time dealing with it seek counseling. This is a hard issue to deal with by yourself.
