What are the military laws on adoption?

My husband is in the army and we want to have him adopt my daughter from a previous relationship. Does anyone know if there's a certain amount of time we have to have been married? We've been married since October. My daughter's biological dad is absentee for the most part and has agreed to consent to the adoption.

  • Check with a lawyer, but I think it's a civil matter, not military....

  • This has nothing to do with the military. It's a family court issue.
