    Default Stepfather Adpoting Stepdaughter

    I Live in Arizona and I have an 8yr old daughter that my husband wants to adpot. My daughters father never signed the birth certificate and has never attempted to communicate with us either. Do you still have to attempt to find the bio father to get consent to adopt or can we start the proper paperwork for the adoption?

    If Father has not contacted the child in a number of years its possible to have his rights removed but you should first consult a Family Law Attorney to make sure you follow proper procedures
