My ex-husband has indicated he would consent to my fiance adopting
My ex-husband has indicated he would consent to my fiance adopting my sons. is there a form I can have him sign or does he just need to notarize a letter consenting to the adoption? We live in NY. Also, how do long do my finace and I have to be married in order for him to adopt them? We have known each other for 23 years, would that waive any of the waiting period or be taken into consideration for an immediate filing upon our marriage?

My fiancée and I are adopting a baby from my step aunt. What paperwork can we do ourselves to start the process and insure it is legal? Is it possible that we can do the entire adoption ourselves?

My daughters former husband abandoned her and their three
My daughter's former husband abandoned her and their three children 12 years ago. The husband moved out of State at that time and has not been involved in the family, not even child support, since then.
The children's ages now are 23, 16 and 12.
When the divorce occured (12 years ago) we (the grandparents) moved our daughter and her family in with us. We have been living together ever since.
Our daughter (the mother of above children) now has what apparently is terminal brain cancer.
1. we understand the eldest is an adult, the second eldest likely can make a decison regarding whom she lives with. What about the 12 year old?
2. what can/should we do- while daughter is living- to insure the 'children' remain in our custody and home?
