Adoption in Oklahoma is legal process that results in a court order declaring one person to be the legal child of the adoptive parent/s. When the adoption is finalized, the birth parents are no longer responsible for the child and they no longer have an obligation to child support. Whether you are still in contact with the father or not, the birth father must be informed of the adoption process. Adoption regulations are always in the best interest of the child. An Oklahoma adoption will provide a safe and permanent home for your child.
Stoddard Morris, PLLC can help you with your Oklahoma adoption and guide you through the adoption process with comfort, guidance, trust, honesty and complete support.
Oklahoma adoption laws dictate who is allowed to be an adoptive parent. As the adoptive parents you must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age, regardless of whether you are single or married. All members of your household, which must accommodate a new member of your family, need to be in good mental/physical health. The adoptive parents or anyone living in the home can not have any history of child abuse, of child neglect or of sexual abuse. With that said, the adoptive family must be ready to accept, love and care for a child that is not biologically related to you. Once the Oklahoma adoption process is completed you will have custody of the child. With custody comes the new responsibility of providing for all of the needs of the children. This is just the first of many steps in building your family through the Oklahoma adoption process.
