Adult Adoption is a special adoption process involving two adults. Unlike other adoptions, these take place in the probate division. Usually, an adult adoptions involves an Adult ages 18-21 years.
However, stepchildren, some blood relatives, and foster children can be adopted without the age restriction. This adoption will secure inheritance and all right linked to a parent-child relationship. The parties can also change the Adult’s birth record to reflect their parent-child relationship. The Parent and Adult will execute a formal agreement that consents to the adoption.
Additional consents may be needed. Then the Adoptive Parent and Adult attend a ceremony hearing for finalization.
