We live is Texas and my 1st question is, How hard would it be to adopt the step child if the bio father is deceased? That is the sitution in my daughter's case. Her bio father died almost 2 years ago but, has never been in the picture. Yes, patrnity was established, no he is not on her birth certifercate. My finance' has been in her life since she was 2 months old.
My 2nd question is, How hard will it be for my finance' to adopt my son as well? No my son and daughter don't have the same bio father. But, my son's bio father signed over parental rights over 2 years ago.
