My question involves adoption law for the State of: Oklahoma
Does anyone know what forms or where to go to get forms for a step parent adoption in Oklahoma? Also do you have to change the name on the birth certificate?
The bio dad has agreed to sign over his rights. The only 2 request he made is that the child be able to keep his last name and that he still be able to see him.
The bio dad isnít a horrible person. He loves his son. He just has issues that he canít over come and would never be able to financial or mental be able to take care of my child to the degree that he should be taken care of. I havenít seen child support in over a year. So it is in the best interest of our child that my husband has rights to him so that if something happens to me that my oldest son could stay with his younger brother and my husband could keep him. My husband has wanted to adopt him for a few years now (we have been married 5). We just finally talked bio dad into it. Just wanted to let yíall know this is not a decision that was made in hast or taken lightly.
We donít have enough money to actually go hire an attorney I checked into it and was told it would run around 3,000. Since the bio dad agrees. I think we could do all the work or try to but I have looked all over the net and canít find the documentation I need to use to file. I have found steps to the process but that is it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
