My husband would like to legally adopt our son. Our son’s biological father has not had any contact with him in 6 years, our son will soon be 8. His father was not very involved before this either. He is also behind $6000+ in child support. How to we go about a step parent adoption? What should we know going into the process?
I know you said the father is behind in support but when is the last time child support was paid. Your current husband could meet criteria for a stepaprent adoption but confer with an attorney. if the father has had no contact and failed to pay support for the last 2 years, you're heading in the right direction
