Anyone have experience with step parent adoption in VA/NoVA?
Hello! We are looking into my DH adopting my first born DS. His bio-Dad hasn't had much or anything to do with him his whole life. We have read some free info online about the laws but not sure how to get good info and/or hire a lawyer. They all seem to want a retainer before they will even talk to is. The bio-Dad is in New Mexico and we are in Leesburg, VA. My DS is 7 in April and has been wishing for my DH to adopt him for well over a year. He came home from Kindergarten the first week of school in 2011 asking and brings it up all the time. He even asked his bio-Dad then and was denied but about 2 weeks ago his bio-Dad called after not having any contact since June (not even Xmas) saying he had been thinking about it. So we would like to strike while the iron is hot .
