Yes, you can adopt a 16 year old legally. My moms friend did.
Not in most states in the US. They require someone to be at least 21 to adopt, as well as meet the support requirements.
no she has to be over 18 to legally adopt it because she didnt give birth to the baby.
Legally, no. In most states, if a lesbian couple wants to legally share a child, the non-biological mother has to adopt the child.
Yes, but only if the legal parents sign all rights.
If I understand the question correctly you are asking if you may adopt YOUR son-in-law who would be your daughters husband. Aside from the complicated family relationship issues I suppose that it could be legally possible IF it conforms to the laws of your state.
No she did not adopt him thats his real mother and father
Minors are not allowed to adopt.
Only if your parents adopt her. Yes if your mom or dad marries your friends mom or dad. OR if you become soul sisters.
Yes all three were adopted legally.
You must be an adult, eighteen or over, in order to legally adopt.
Yes, with your parents permission
No- neither of his two daughters is adopted.
yes because they adult is now legally your son/daughter...
When you are 18, you are an adult by law and no one can adopt you legally.
Yes of you adopt it as a baby
The father would need to legally give up his rights to the child or the court would have to take them away in order for the new husband to adopt the child.
You file a petition in the court with jurisdiction (usually a family/civil court) in the county and state where the child is a resident. Please be advised, when a person wishes to legally adopt their new spouse's child the biological father or mother must be deceased or voluntarily relinquish his or her or have had parental rights permanently terminated by court order.
If he married the mother of a the child and he's under age he will sponsor the child too. If not he can legally try to adopt the child good luck
I'm in a relation ship where my friend sign his right away and the mother has no rights the children is in foster care or rather the foster mother adopt them now she want them to get to know their real father and mother and i want to know is this legal
No. The girl can not petition the court for you to adopt her. It would be possible for her father to give her up for adoption and you to adopt her. She, however, can not change the situation on her own.
