my daughters want the same thing and i am trying too see how to go about filing the paperwork.
my ex husband has agreed to sign over his rights where do i start to terminated his parental rights and adoption papers for my girls?
A: Adoptions are so complex that most attorneys will not even attempt an adoption. It is not a do it yourself project so your first step should be to hire an experienced adoption attorney. They will be able to help you get this done.
I wish you the best of luck with your case
