Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
i adopted a child on my husbands side of our family and it has taken a toll on our own children so we have decided to let another family member adopt her from us,but since she was in states custody do we have to go through them in any way with this adoption cause she is legally ours.
Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
If she is no longer a ward of the state and you are the legal parents, you should not have to go through the state. You have the same rights as any other parent and should be able to do a private adoption.
Do you have any other questions?
