Adoption over 21 years old and getting married

Baltimore, MD |

I am in the process of adoption by my step dad, I just signed the papers and sent back to the lawyer. Now, I am planning to get married soon. Is it going to conflict the process of adoption if I get married?
And how long is the process of adoption takes for over 21 years old?
Please let me know what would be the best option with my situation.

Getting married should not affect the adoption process. It is my experience that an adoption of an adult is fairly straight forward and should go smoothly and at the pace the court sets as long as all paperwork is complete. So the timing is based on the completeness of the paperwork you file and the work load of the judges in the circuit court.
