    Step Father Adoption
    Can a step father adopt children when the biological father is in jail? Does he have to have consent if the father is being deported back to Mexico?

    Thank you, Janie

    Most courts will not grant an adoption without the biological parent's agreement.

    Yes. The biological father has to give his consent, regardless of being incarcerated, an illegal immigrant, etc.
