Re: Can I Adopt My Ex-Girlfriend's Daughter
You just went from difficult and unlikely to impossible.
If the mother is not giving up her rights, then it isn;t going to happen. The courts do not allow for a person that has no attachment to the other parent to adopt their child while they remain a parent themselves.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
