Can adoption be set aside if divorce is filed less than one year after adoption by step parent who adopted spouses children?
Answer . yes. edited:. NO! It can't. Adoption is permanent. The children have lost their birth certificates and had them sealed by the state now due to the finalization o…f the adoption. You took on parental responsibilities that are legal in the eyes of the law. .
Its complicated. In order for you to be adopted by him right now your biological father would have to relinquish all his rights to you (unless he is no longer living then you …might be able to I'm not sure). If he refuses to do so then no one can force him to. If you are sure this is what you want and have thought long and hard about it I would talk to a lawyer, he could help you better then me. Every state has their own rules and regulations. You may have to wait until you are 18 and file for an adult adoption, then your biological father won't have any say in it at all. Again every state is different so don't take my word for it. I'm just going off my personal experience. I'm almost 18 now and this is how I'm doing it. Again if your serious talk to a lawyer. It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion. My advise is just about my personal experience. Good luck and remember think long and hard about your final decision.
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.
This question does not contain enough information to be answered. Who are you wanting to adopt? and WHY did you put this question in Bible Statistics and History, and Comparit…ive Denominations? Those categories have nothing to do with adoption. Here is the category about adoption: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/FAQ/406
Many people can adopt but you would need to fill out some forms. Also it would be a good idea to do some research before you do.
This is an opinion question. Here is my opinion: . To give them the legal status of natural children and thus the security that comes with this status. . To prevent others… with legal claims from taking them away from their adoptive parents. . It allows people who could otherwise have no children to have children of their own . Because the adoptive parents want to see them as their own children. Maybe others will add to this list.
Adoption is when you take in a child/baby that you did not birth. There are many steps in adopting a child and can be very emotional and may bring alot of down falls. But neve…r the less adopting a child that needs a family and love is the right thing to do!!!
There are some general things but here is some facts I found. Many years ago, only married couples were permitted to adopt. Single people and homosexual couples were exclud…ed as a matter of course, without evaluation of their individual merits as potential parents. Today, a wider spectrum of prospective parents is considered eligible to adopt, although the process is still easier for some people than for others. conventional married couples are considered the best candidates for becoming adoptive parents. The reasoning behind this is sound, if a bit socially backwards. Married couples are considered more stable and committed to one another, thus more capable of being good, consistent parents than are unmarried people. Also Some agencies set minimum age requirements for adoption, (25 years of age or older), and many have maximum age requirements (45 or 50 years of age or younger). International adoptions may also have age restrictions or requirements as well. These age restrictions should be considered when deciding from which countries it is appropriate to pursue adoption. Finally, birth parents also often express age preferences, either for older or younger couples, which adoption agencies will attempt to honor as closely as possible.. Adoption application procedures include a thorough background check. Both legal and financial issues are examined. Any past legal or financial issues that become known because of this check may restrict a couple from adopting. The severity and length of time of past legal convictions (such as drug or alcohol convictions) is considered in making adoption decisions; any serious offense is typically enough to halt the process entirely. For example, no one previously convicted as a sexual offender is allowed to adopt children. Those who pursue domestic adoption with a felony offense on their record will face a long, hard road. Most agencies will not consider anyone with serious convictions due to the possible liability risks that the agency could face if harm later comes to the child. Those with a felony conviction will not be authorized to adopt internationally, per U.S. regulations. Past or present financial problems can also make the adoption process difficult. A history of bankruptcy, large amounts of debt, or any failure to make child support payments can negatively affect an application. Agencies are not looking for only wealthy families to adopt, but they do want to make sure that parents have the financial stability to provide for a child.
No, legally they are both the parents.
Is it true that obama signed a bill that says that adopted children get one third less social security than a biological kid would?
that is false.
Children should be told about their adoption even before they are able to verbally communicate. Conversations about adoption should be positive, natural, and factual and commu…nicated in a way that recognizes the child developmental stage. What is said at 2 is going to be much different than what is shared at 16. As an adoptive parent and an adoption specialist, I recall feeding my son in his high chair and practicing what I would say when he was older. This helped me feel comfortable with the conversation while I figured out what and how I would tell him. He is now 3 and is able to tell me that he was in Sarah's tummy, that Sarah loved him, that Sarah was with him at the hospital when he was born. He also asks me to tell him about when Daddy and I first saw him. That has become his "birth story" and he loves hearing it. His questions are small right now and someday they will be much more complicated. But we have laid the groundwork for our conversations to be honest and open. I hope by talking about it openly, he won't worry about hurting our feelings or wondering where we stand or if this is an open topic of conversation. If you wait to tell your child at that "right" age, at each stage you might find reasons why now isn't the right time. And then, before you know it, your child is 8...9...10. So, you will be nervous, you might sit your child down on the couch with a serious look on your face, your child will think something is wrong, he or she will be worried. This definitely sets a different tone and sends a message like, "Adoption is not a good thing" or "We don't really want to talk about it." Children pick up on these cues from their parents and as they get older they won't feel comfortable talking about it. It's not that they won't think about it...they will. You just won't be privy to those thoughts and feelings. That can be an emotionally difficult thing for an adoptee. So, long explanation but short answer: Tell your child as early as possible!!!
You get adopted because your real parents couldn't look after you so they put you in a care home until someone comes along and becomes your foster parents an adopts you
Because either your parents thought you needed someone else to take care of you or social services took you off them cause they couldent look after you proper ley like me xox …but they still love you no matter what xox and dont want you to go but sometimes it has to be that way xox dont worry if you wanted you can always go find them later xox they no like you no more
yes because he knew that he was gonna be a lozer son
Not really. Not unless the parent that adopts the child is abusive in a way. CHILD ABUSE WAY! So not really. ;) Vote for the smile babby!
If the biological father is known and still has his parental rights he have to give them up in order for the stepdad to be allowed to apply for adoption.
