    Default How Does Adoption of an Adult Work in Illinois

    My question involves adoption law for the State of: Illinois

    My daughter is 19 years old. Her biological father is on her birth certificate. She wants him removed. He has not been a part of her life for many years. For the majority of her life my husband (her step dad) has been her "father". She wants to credit the man who has helped her become the person she is today and her biological father is not that person. She is not looking to change her name just the father's name on her birth certificate. What does she have to do to make this happen?

    Thank you
