My nephew and his ex have a baby coming in may. She doesn't want it and my nephew can't take care of it. Mom agreed she would let me have it instead of adoption with strangers. What do we need to do for me to get custody? What legal papers need to be filed?
Please don't attempt this on your own. Contact a local adoption attorney who can provide you specific guidance on the process. You want to make sure everyone is protected and that the adoption will be valid. www.adoptionart.org has an attorney search tool.
