What can you do if your parents adopt you without adoption papers?
In many cases when adoption papers haven't been signed this is a good indication that either someone in the family was pregnant with you and for reasons of their own could't look after you, so your adoptive parents took over. Even a friend of one of your adoptive parents. Most adoptions that are legal are in the records of that adoption agency and the papers are for protection purposes so that child can never be taken away from the adoptive parents. Please sit down with your parents and tell them you are old enough for the truth. Assure them you still love them, but you feel a large void in your life and you need to know who your real parents are so you can get on with your life. I doubt they will refuse, but if they do, you can either try to find out the adoption agency, or if this is too hard hire a detective to find out who your parents were. Good luck Marcy
If your parents are not your biological parents and have adopted you and made themselves your legal guardians then they would have to have adoption papers or it wouldn't be legal.
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.
When you adopt without an adoption agency it is called a private adoption.
Then it's not a adoption and is illegal. You have to have papers to show who the child is and where he comes from etc. You might loose the child and go to prison. This is also for the best of the child. If he wants to find out about his past one day and to make sure he has not been illegally taken from his parents.

Adoption is usually used to establish a legally accepted parent-child or custodial relationship. If your sister-in-law is a minor without custodial parents, it might be possible to adopt her, but as your child, not as your sister. Consult an attorney familiar with adoption law in your area, petition the courts and see if it works.
A semi closed adoption is when the parents giving up the baby get to chose the adoptive parents that are eligible to adopt but there is no contact and no exchange of identifying info between the two parents
Any parent looking to adopt should check with their city/state about kids up for adoption. Contact a local adoption agency to find out who is up for adoption.

If 15 yr old girl 16 yr old boy are having baby and want to adopt out can parents of kids make them keep the baby or can the kids legally put baby up for adoption?
No, only the parents decide this and the adoption papers is the only legally binding contract a minor can sign. When it comes to your child you have the same rights as an adult. No one can force you to keep the child, abort or give it up for adoption.
You can't since she's not interested but if you want to be put up for adoption you first need to contact a social worker and speak to your parents. Without their permission or if they are found to be bad parents you have to stay with them.
I would like to adopt my stepchild do i need her father's permission he has no parental rights to her?
Not necessarily, however having the biological parents consent to the adoption makes the process much easier and faster. And having no parents rights is not the same thing as giving his consent. With or without his consent, however the adoption process is possible.
The only way birthparents could adopt their child back is if the adoptive parents put the child up for adoption and agreed to give the child back to the birthparents. Once the child is adopted, the birthparents cannot force the parents to give the child back.
Both parents have to sign the papers except in Utah where the father only needs to be notified. There are also cases where the woman says she has no idea who the father is so unless the man stays in touch and see she is pregnant his chances are very small.

Yes, an adult of legal age may agree to an adoption of themself, without consent from their parents. Laws vary state by state so check your local laws to be sure you are doing it correctly. Adult adoptions can be done without a lawyer, as long as all parties involved agree to the adoption.

You can adopt through the cell phone or the telephone using the option 'call for services', then 'adoption service'.

If the child's parents are no longer in the legal picture, then there are steps to follow in order to adopt the child. Many foster children are in foster care while their parents get education, jobs and/or get off of drugs, so the child or children are not available for adoption.

In any part of the world that I know of, it would be impossible to adopt a child at that age. It is well below the lower limit of adoption and there are other factors that are considered that would be difficult for a fifteen year old to fulfill. The input of your parents does not count unless they are the ones applying to adopt for themselves.

If her legal guardian (probably her parents) consent, an adoption could be simple. If the present parents will not consent, you would need to litigate the issue. You should speak with an attorney that practices adoption law in your state for more information. Perhaps you could be awarded a guardianship rather than having to adopt her.
No. In the United States, sexual orientation is generally irrelevant for single-parent adoptions. There are some states where same-sex married couples can jointly adopt.

There are also many states where the adoption may be legal, but there are no legal protections against discrimination… Read More

You need to have the Skyrim add-on "Hearthfire" installed. It's on Steam for around $5, if I'm not wrong. Once you have it installed, random new children will appear in towns without parents and you will have dialogue to adopt them. Also, a courier will give you a letter saying the Honorhall Orphanage in Riften is open for adoption(provided you have previously killed Grelod the Kind).
If by adoptive family you are referring to her legal parents, yes. This would be a private adoption. You should contact an attorney in your area that specializes in adoption to inquire about the process.
If you are adopted the parents care for you just like any other family. There is no adoption check. No one is being paid in order to adopt someone. If you were in foster care and turn 18 you will get a check and be out on your own.
No, once the adoption is finalized nothing can take the child away unless you are a unfit parent. And the child can never go back to the biological parents since that was a part of the adoption agreement.

I adopted a child. The main reasons you should not adopt is A: The adoption may be illegal for one party or the other. B: The child may have special needs that the adoptive parents are not capable of providing for.

its called adoption. You do not have to adopt to get full custody of a child. You can request that the court place the children in your care without adopting.
While only an adoptive parent, and not an attorney or any legal representative- Rescinding an adoption is not easy in Illinois, practically impossible, and even harder since "Baby Richard" and the laws that were enacted because of that case.
