    A child CANNOT be placed in your home for the purpose of adoption if you do not have a homestudy done. You should definitely contact an attorney or agency regarding your adoption planNicole W.

    If you have tried everything in your power to make it work and still find yourself wanting to place your child for adoption, you should contact Heart of Adoptions of Florida 1-800-GO-Adopt, as they have a list of waiting families. If they do not have families depending on the child's age, there are other organizations that specialize with disrupted adoptions. Nicole W. Moore, Esq. Board Certified Adoption Attorney Jeanne T.

    Abandonment is based on multiple factors and an attorney would need to know if you were married, if he is on the BC, what type of financial support, emotional support and physical support he provided, etc. You should contact an adoption attorney to learn more about the process.

    In order to legally place your child for adoption, you need to go through an adoption entity. I recommend Heart of Adoptions, Inc. They have offices throughout Florida. They can work with you and the adoptive parents to make sure everything is handled timely and legally. There is something you can sign before you leave and before the child's birth. BEst of Luck!

    In order to complete an adoption in Florida, you must hire an adoption entity, which is either an adoption agency or an adoption attorney. The entity will prepare all the legal documents and go to court in order to terminate the birth parent's rights and finalize the adoption. The fact that you already have identified a birth mother and baby means that your adoption will be much more affordable since you are applying to be on a waitlist. I encourage you to call respected agencies in your area...

    You should contact a board certified adoption attorney to assist you with this stepparent adoption. They can explain what is required to terminate the birth father's rights and allow your husband to adopt. This may involve a diligent search og the birth father or publishing gor him depending on the facts, ie) was he in the birth certificate? Were you ever married to him? Stepparent adoptions are very detail oriented and factually driven, so be sure to hire competent counsel. Feel free to call...

    It is not a crime, but rather a wonderful option to choose to place a child into a more stable and loving home, should you feel like you can no longer care for your child. I would call a respected adoption agency, like Heart of Adoptions, and inquire about families willing to adopt a three year old and what that process would entail. Best of luck in giving your child a better life! Nicole W. Moore, Esq. Board Certified Adoption Attorney Jeanne T. Tate, P.A. 1604 South Bumby Avenue...

    You are describing a stepparent adoption and the biological father would NEED to be notified. While his consent MAY not be needed, he will have to be given notice. These types of adoptions range from $2500 and up.

    I would not advise that you say you don't know who the birth father is because you want to make sure he is legally terminated, and so you must notify him. With that being said, it sounds like he had legally abandoned, both emotionally and financially, the child and so your case would be very strong. My advice is to retain an adoption attorney to handle your adoption and make sure it is accomplished truthfully and lawfully. Nicole W. Moore, Esq. Board Certified Adoption Attorney Jeanne...
