  • Weve been fiddling with it for a while. Unsure if we want to do it now. But you have to see a lawyer, they send papers to your ex then you have a social worker into your home for a interview with the ENTIRE family. If social worker says everything is kosher then they will proceed.

  • BTW you have to pay for the social worker to come in, here it's about 400.00.

  • We've been toying with this too. My husband has been wanting to adopt my daughter for years. I haven't heard from her BF since 2004 and it sucks he has more rights than my husband based on DNA.
