My question involves name change laws in the State of: APO and Georgia
Hello before i ask a question here is a brief summary of the situation.
when my wife and i started dating she was 2 months pregnant with another mans child. I was with her through the entire pregnancy and when the time came for her to sign the birth certificate she was the only parent to sign. The biological father was not present nor has he tried to be in contact with the child or my wife. My stepdaughter is now 4 and i am stationed in Japan serving in the USAF.
My question is would it be a difficult situation for me to adopt her? I honestly don't see us having to have the biological fathers consent because when i was sent to japan i didn't need his consent to bring her seeing as how he legally isn't her father.
Any advice or help is much appreciated!
