Shan Dimitris Potts' answer I do not get what you mean by "Spouse me". Spouse is a word used to describe a husband/wife in a marriage. You should consider talking to an immigration attorney in private to first decide what your goals are. All the best.

Julie A. Rice's answer If you aren't married to the person who wants to adopt her that is your first problem. Why would you want someone you aren't even married to to have parental rights to your daughter? If the biological father is paying child support and is not willing to terminate any parental rights that he could establish in the future, then it is questionable whether or not he wants a relationship with her in the future. In this scenario, actions speak louder than words.
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer You need to find a lawyer in your area to handle the adoption. The mother and father (unless you are the father) will agree to have their parental rights terminated, and you will go through the adoption process. DO NOT try this without an attorney. Adoptions must be done exactly according to the law to work properly. Good Luck!!
Julie A. Rice's answer You are not old enough to sign any documents amounting to a contract if you are a minor. Contact DFACs and get their help to get custody of your child if you can't hire a private attorney.
Julie A. Rice's answer If you want to have rights in Georgia, then you need to establish legitimation under Georgia Laws and Georgia now has jurisdiction over everybody if all live in GA as you state. You can use your paternity from CO as evidence in the GA case, but it does not necessarily mean that the child is legitimate.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer For a child to be adopted in Alaska (as well as in most other states), you have to make reasonable efforts to give him notice of the adoption proceeding. Since you know who he is, your mother would have to serve him with process. This doesn't mean that he can successfully object, but he has to be given notice.
Melissa Averett's answer No. Assuming the adoption was done correctly, your biological parents have no rights under NC law. Your adoptive parents can have law enforcement make you come back until you are 18. I realize that seems like a long time from now, but its not. If you are being physically abused, call law enforcement or child protective services. If you are not being physically abused, try to work with your parents until you turn 18, talk to a school counselor or a pastor or other adult you trust. Good luck.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer These are not just basic legal question but entail much knowledge and having done research into local cases. Your best bet is to get to a local adoption attorney about these questions that you have. The attorney will be able to have a full discussion with you.
Shan Dimitris Potts' answer In order to bring someone to the United states you will need a visa for that person. Talk to an immigration attorney first to find out what options work for you. All the best.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer The best thing you can do is to go see a local family/adoption attorney for a full discussion. To answer your question would most likely require some research on this specific topic.
