Q: I met two kids during my visits to West Africa, Nigeria Precisely both are so lovely and i would really love to adopt both of them and their parents has given me the consent to adopt them, but i just dont know how the process work here in the state, how to organize all the paper work together.
Q: My wife and I are a lesbian couple who had a child together with a donor who we know. We did not do the medical or legal aspect during conception, which later led to the donor taking us to court for paternity. Eventually he withdrew the case and signed the consent for me, the non biological mother, to adopt. The Paternity case caused us a lot of expense so I want to know if an attorney is needed to proceed with the adoption. We want to make sure he can not take us to court regarding our daughter again or interfere with my rights as her legal and custodial parent. Please advise. Thank you.

Q: My mother began an adoption process to adopt my nephew in 2016 the biological father signed a termination of parental rights. My moms attorney filed the paperwork and ended up getting very ill. The adoption was rejected because of missing paper work. I know we now have to resubmit all the paperwork like finger prints and home study but will we need to get the termination of parental right signed all over again? Or would it still be valid? Biological Father is no where to be found.

A: David's Answer: If he is actually the child's biological parent, then you cannot simply remove his name from the birth certificate until his parental rights have been terminated. The only way to achieve this in the non-fostercare setting is to file for a stepparent adoption. If this is the approach you wish to take, call a Bronx Adoption attorney to schedule an appointment.
