Adoption

Me and my fiancee are planning our wedding, but it wont be for another year that we are officially married... my question is, can he adopt my son from a previous relationship before we're married? I am from WA state, I can't seem to find the info on the local Courts pages.

  • I don't think he can until he is your husband And then I think your sons real dad has to sign over his rights.

  • You need your childs father to relinquish his rights.

  • I don't think so, but check with an attorney in your state as each is different. Congrats!
