Can My Husband Adopt My Child With Out Biological Father Consent ?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: November 17, 2020

Q: I had my son 8 years ago , biological father never signed birth certificate or has never been in my son life. I got married almost 3 years ago but my husband has been in son life since her was 1 year and few months. I did request child support from my son father but never received anything or have had any contact at all for years. So my husband wants to adopt my son.

A: Yes – you’d need to commence an adoption case & get the Father served with the Notice of the Adoption. After he’s served, if he objects to the adoption, the Judge can conduct an “abandonment hearing” – a hearing on your facts you’re very likely to win. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Adoption Attorney for a full assessment.
