If she will voluntarily reliquish her parental rights then adoptiion once you are married should not be a problem. However you need to be aware that in case it does not work out you could be responsible for child support for the next 15 years. I have seen it happen so you may want to wait a year or two after marriage to make such a decision.
It is extremely difficult to do an adoption by yourself so you will need to retain an attorney, especially since she is out of state. Here is the referral site.
You would have to file the paperwork and once the adoption is complete she would not be responsible for child support. Good luck to you in your marriage and thanks for using JA.
This is my last question and then i will accept. So even if she is willing to give up her rights and the father will let her...they may still not grant that without an adoption?
With an adoption...is it possible to get her parental rights taken away if she is not willing to do it voluntarily. Thank you for your time.
