Q: Is it possible for my fiancé to adopt my child, since his biological father has not been involved in his life?
A: It is possible for your fiancé to adoption your child, but only when he becomes your husband. In Georgia a stepparent can adopt his or her stepchild with the consent of the spouse who is the biological parent. There are some additional considerations that must be taken into account when filing a petition for a stepparent adoption. If you are considering a stepparent adoption once you and your fiancé are married, please give us a call at The Embry Law Firm, LLC at 1-844-44EMBRY (1-844-443-6379).
