My husband told me he wants to adopted DS. The only contact he had with bio-dad was when he was in 2007. DS will be 4 y/o in August. I'm the only one on his birth certificate and he has my maiden name. I was wondering if we can just put my husbands name on the birth certificate, and go to the court house to change the last name? Or would we have to go through courts? I was adopted myself but I realize step-parent adoption is a little different.Answer Question
My dad adopted my step moms children, all 7 of them. He had to go to the court system, he had to get permission from the biological dad of the children. He did it so he could put those children on his insurance. What is really odd is that as much as I hate my father, those children hate him worse. As much as I cannot stand my step mom, her kids hate her worse. I hope your situation works out better then ours did. I guess the anger came because we used to get postcards from all the wonderful trips my dad took them on, long letters about the new lake house. My Mom got $40 a month in child support for 5 girls. Needless to say, for us, it was a disaster.
