Re: Second Parent

I don't know what you mean by "second parent adoption". Do you mean a step-parent adopting a non-bio child?

Re: Second Parent

I have a few friends who have (meaning their step dad adopted them as their bio fathers had absolutely no part in their lives). I could hook you up with one. One is actually a DS member but don't think she's too active here anymore since her youngest is 3. I do know one bio father signed easily but the other two put up a little fuss.

Re: Second Parent

Second parent adoption is generally a term used by gay/lesbian families. Or, when one parent is biologically related and another isn't (i.e. donation). Or, someone could call it something else too. Its a good idea in case something happens for both parents to be legal parents.

I would find a attorney who specializes in it. Our attorney did/does a lot of them and I don't think the process is a big deal but it depends on your particular situation and state. From what I understand you need a home study (but it may vary depending on where you live and sometimes the courts can do it for you).

Re: Second Parent

Yea my kid bio father not been in life like all 8 yrs. Delinquent in support up the hilt & so we won't have proof issue but bio father father ( his dad) likes to pretend to be bio father (ex). So that cost scares me. My attorney is 2000 retainer & who knows what exs dad will raise it to. But there's a warrant out too so not sure......
