THE ADOPTION WAS FINAL IN DECEMBER AND THEY SIGNED THE DIVORCE IN THE MIDDLE OF JAN.
Family Lawyer: P. Simmons, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Thanks

If the adoption is final? Then it is too late to turn it back...similar to a divorce, once the decree is issued? That divorce is final.

This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that he can somehow undo the adoption, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
