Hello. I am currently hosting a foreign exchange student from Germany. I want to legally adopt her so she can attend school in the US. She is 17 years old and from what I have read she may have aged out. Her family may be willing to waive their parental rights in order for her to be adopted by us. What are my options? She will turn 18 on December 24th, 2017.

1. Is there a fee for this service? 2. I am the legal

Hi Pearl, 1. Is there a fee for this service? 2. I am the legal guardian of a 16 year old who will be 17 July 13th. She is pregnant due date 9.28.17. Both she and her boyfriend live with me now. He will be 18 mid April. If she moves out with my permission after he graduates HS together am I still legally responsible for her until she is 18 if they do not get married? Does her having a child change the situation at all? Thanks. Deborah(###) ###-####JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Family Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason. Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: California. Ok I'll do it.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I am concerned about my legal responsibility for my pregnant 17 year old. I assume I am still responsible if she stays with me until she is 18 but I am not sure what the status is if she moves out unless she applies for emancipation and I do not see her going to court to be emancipated with an infant to take care of. She would not be able to prove that she could support herself!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I might have to co-sign for a studio apartment for them so they could start their family life. If they were homeless there are great services here (Marin County north of SF). I just do not know how long or far my legal responsibility extends and if her soon to be a Mom changes anything. Thank you. She has no job. He has not job yet, but will receive $889 a month from AB12 money (Foster care). I can access a small inheritance for her of about $1000 a month starting in July. So, if I found an inexpensive studio they might be able to make it with some help. ***** *****(###) ###-####***@******.***
