A: Great news! If you've been married for over six months, your husband has the opportunity to adopt your children. Although the biological fathers are entitled to notice, a skilled and creative attorney can assist in securing their consent, making the process smooth and stress-free. The judge may want to speak with your children to ensure that the adoption is in their best interest. With the right guidance, your family can experience the joy and security that comes with legal adoption.
