In the case of a kinship adoption, which is generally done with the consent of the parties, you should contact an attorney who specializes in adoptions. States have various laws regarding adoptions and there may be social services involvement such as evaluations and in some states, the adoptive parents must register as foster parents. An attorney will help you navigate the process in your state with the least difficulty.
