    Default Adult Adoption in Mi by Ex-Stepdad

    My question involves adoption law for the State of: Michigan
    My siblings and I would like our stepdad, whom is divorced from our mother to adopt us. We are all adults and he the only dad we have ever known. How can we make this happen?

    What is it you are trying to accomplish by adoption?

    An adoption would remove your mother (and father) from the BC, and she (they) would no longer legally be your parent(s).
    Don't make me quote Monty Python at you.

    Michigan does allow for adult adoptions (not all states do) but as Boo already said, if your ex stepdad adopted you then your mother would no longer legally be your mother. He would have had to adopt you while he was still married to your mother in order for it to be a stepparent adoption that would allow your mother to remain your mother.

    Do you only want his last name ? Each one of the adult children can do a legal name change.
