Customer Question
Trying to find adult...

Trying to find adult adoption forms for Ky. My 18 yr old son just found me and is going into the military. I am about to have major surgery so if I need him the only way they can pull him out and he can come home to help me is if I legally adopt him

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Kentucky

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No i have not, we cannot afford an attorney

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

How do we need to do the adoption for my other half? we are not married and My son wants him to be put as his father.

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
He was adopted by his foster family. He is leaving for the military in 2 weeks so I do not have time for legal aide. I have to have it done and he wants his name changed back to his original by the time he leaves, at least having the paperwork started was enough for the recruiter. Louisville
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I have filed legal paperwork in the past, have done my first divorce and filed my ex's for him as well
