Arresto Menor
To lawyers or others who know about laws I need your help. Since I was a baby my grandmother and grandfather took care of me until now that I am 23 years old. I live with them and my mother has her own family and house. Can they adopt me even if I am of legal age already?

Sabi poh sa batas - Who may be adopted?
Kasali poh eto sa binanggit...

What are the reasons for adoption since you are legally connected already? Nwei, watever it is, I advised you and your grandparents to learn the laws governing adoptions in our state and to consult an attorney. A full understanding of adult adoption and its effects is necessary before beginning the process of gaining or becoming a brand new son or daughter, no matter what your age is.
