How can adopt my wife's son (my step son)
Asked Nov 13, 2007, 07:08 PM
My wife's ex husband doesn't really take care of his son. He doesn't call or anything. The only thing that we get is approximately $45 every 2-3 weeks but that amount varies. I on the other hand have been providing everything for my wife's son even before we got married since her son was about 3 months old. Ever since I have provided food clothing well everything from dippers to health care and the only thing his bio father provides is gas money because that's the only thing $45 every other week is good for. The relationship between me and my wife's son is the same as a father and son relation. So my question is, I am a marine stationed in ca and his bio father is in Pennsylvania I have provided everything for my step son and his bio father doesn't even call, how do I go about to adopt him and change his last name to mine? And what would happen if he does not agree to it? What would I have to do?
