    Adopting the son of my wife
    My Cameroonian wife and I, an American, were married recently in Burkina Faso. We will be living in Liberia for at least two years. She has a six-year old son, who is on her passport. The father of her son has had no contact with her since shortly after the birth. His whereabouts are unknown and it is not likely that he will ever be found. How do I adopt this boy?

    You retain a Family Law attorney where you have established residence. Given the international nature of your request I couldn't begin to guess at what legalities you will have to go through to process an adoption.
