My stepmother was very manipulative when I was a small child and convinced me that she should adopt me. Later in life, I reconnected with my biological mother and want my stepmother to no longer be my "mother". What steps do I need to take?
I believe you can once you are over age eighteen. This sounds like a sad situation.
Your question does imply that you are an adult. If so, you can initiate an Adult Adoption- I would consider finding an attorney to help with the process. Legally, you will no longer inherit from your stepmother.
