I been with him over a year and i would like for him to adopt her.. She already calls him dad and i was wondering how to go about this
Please speak with an attorney to discuss your options. The short answer, however, is that you cannot proceed with an adoption at this time. These matters have several procedural check marks that must be met prior to the Court granting an adoption.
Theoretically it is possible, but it would be very expensive and complicated, and is not likely to be granted by a Judge. If you were married and the father didn't have a relationship with the child and/or consented, it would be quick and easy.
