    Answered . It is almost impossible to do an adoption without an attorney. Almost 0% of pro se adoptions are granted. Indeed, adoption law is so technical, and the requirements of each judge vary, that probably 95% of lawyers lack the experience to do one. Do yourself a favor and don't ruin your chance of success by not getting counsel. Unless the requisite consents, affidavits, forms, disclosures and so on are prefect (and there are no "forms" anywhere for this), you may be very disappointed. With a lawyer this should be fairly quick and easy.
