Family Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

The student is over 18 so legal custody is not an option. The student is considered an adult. You could attempt to do an adoption. Would you like more information on adult adoptions?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
If I adopt her, can I resolve the adoption once she graduates?
Family Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

I am not sure what you mean by resolve the adoption. What do you mean?
