An adult adoption may occur once the potential adoptee reaches the age of 18 or older. At that time, the only consent required is that of the adult wishing to be adopted and, of course, the person willing to adopt.
What Is The Process For An Adult Adoption?
Filing your adoption petition with the court.
- Signing the adoption consent forms.
- Finalizing the adoption in court.
- Obtaining an amended birth certificate for the adoptee, changing the adoptee’s surname and updating your will, if desired.
