1 Adoption Question on Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:59 pm


Arresto Menor

I was married to my wife last year. She already had an illegitimate child when we married. At this time, we would like to have me adopt our child so she will bear the same family surname as my wife and I. There will be no one to challenge the adoption.

Can we simply pick up paperwork at a government office, fill it out and file it (I hope)? If so, what government office would have the required paperwork?

On the off chance, do you know what other paperwork we will need to file with the adoption papers. I am thinking the child's birth certificate and our marriage license at the minimum.

Thank you very much for the assistance...

adoption requires a petition to be filed in court.
