Im getting an injuction sent out on thursday theyve been saying for two years they are taking me to court but haven't does this mean she has to see him?
Can I get my fianc? To adopt her?
1. Most states require marriage of AT LEAST one year before a step-parent adoption can happen.
2. You need to get the biological father's permission for an adoption to happen--sounds like he won't give it.
3. In order to have an adoption go through without his permission, you need to PROVE that it is COMPLETELY in the child's best interests to never have him in her life---which is VERY difficult to do. Even with a history of drugs and abuse (which I'm sure you have documented with police reports....right?), he may still be able to get SUPERVISED visitation with your child if you go to court.
