You would have to give the attorney notice of the hearing. It is very easy to mess up an adoption, so much so that most attorneys will not even attempt an adoption case. You really should have an attorney that really knows adoptions to help you and they will be able to deal with notice issues.

Adoptions are so complex that most lawyers will not even attempt to do an adoption. An adult adoption will be easier than a child but I think it would be worth your time to meet with an expert to learn the process and your options.
Given we are talking about termination of rights for cause and not adoption, it is possible, but it does give the State the ability to take future children on a presumption of you are unfit. It is a more complex question than can be answered here...Boeheim Freeman Law 918-884-7791
