St Louis, MO asked in Family Law and Adoption for New York

Q: I'm wanting to pursue an adult adoption in Buffalo New York but I do not live in the state of New York.

A: An adoption attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. If you haven't spoken with an attorney by now, one option is to reach out to attorneys, where you could supplement your searches with the "Find a Lawyer" tab above and the referral sections of local and state bar associations. Those resources are outside this Q & A forum. Another resource outside this forum is an organization known as the Academy of Adoption & Assisted Reproduction Attorneys. I am not familiar with it, but they might be a source of information with your matter. Good luck
