I want to know how to I go about adopting my divorced wife's daughter. My ex-wife uses drugs and is physically abusive to my ex-stepdaughter. My ex-wife, her daughter and I all reside in a house. I am fearful that my ex-wife might seriously physically abuse my ex stepdaughter. They have been involved in two physical altercations in the past. My ex-wife uses drugs, falls asleep in the bathroom, and does not get her daughter up on time for school. #1

my 21 yr old daughter passed away,in the state of Georgia, leaving a two year old child, whose "father" never legitimated the child in the State of Georgia and is currently incarcerated. The child is not involved with Family and Children Services or under the control of any State agency, what can I do as her next of kin to adopt her or obtain custody of her in Maryland if she is currently in the State of Maryland? #2

You must be an adult in order to adopt. At 17 years old, you are not legally an adult in the U.S. #5
